Create and Color a Beautiful Trumpet Flower Card

After spending several hours carving the stamp for this card (because I had an idea but not the right stamp available—DIY to the rescue), I wanted to make sure that the flower and banner image got the best possible color treatment I could give it. At first glance it’s a simple card, but the layers of color that went into creating it and the attention to detail (like coloring the cut edges of the fussy-cut image to blend with the stamped outlines) in finishing it, hopefully, show how an otherwise simple card can stand on its own without a lot of embellishments.

Skill: Advanced
Time: varies due to hand-carving element
