Another Beautiful Iris






I just love working with the new Dutch Iris stamp collection and matching dies from Heartfelt Creations and want to post another card using some more stamps from that collection.  Isn't that the most gorgeous Iris!  The products used on this card are:  HCPC 3372 Dutch Iris Frame PreCut Set; HCPC 3373 Dutch Iris Medley PreCut Set; HCD 711 Decorative Dutch Iris Die

This is a 5.5 inch square card. The Iris Frame was stamped with VersaMark ink on Ivory card stock and embossed with super fine gold embossing powder. A Martha Stewart Garden Trellis border was attached to the left side of the card, then the iris frame place on the right side. Two Dutch Iris flowers were stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and cut out with the matching die. One of the flowers was cut apart to create a dimensional iris. A burgundy colored pencil and OMS were used to color it. Three of the smaller iris leaves were stamped with black ink and also colored with colored pencils and OMS. A stem was hand drawn, cut out and colored then the flower was arranged on the lower left side of the card. Yellow Flower Soft was added to the center of the flower to complete the card.


There are more stamps in this collection I will post later. 

Hope you are having a great weekend.

Oh this is lovely! The colors on the Iris are so beautiful! This looks like I could smell the wonderful scent of the bloom if I were close enough! Your coloring in spot on and the flower soft just does the trick for the middle of the bloom!
