2 for 1 Flower Press Plate Background Technique

The Summer Collection from LDRS Creative is FINALLY HERE! I absolutely love the new A2 Impress-ion Press + Foil Plates. Any time I can get my hands on a product that gives me a gorgeous background, I will! I used the Wall Flower Impress-ion Press + Foil Plate to make two cards at once with this oldie, but a goodie, technique. 

It's so hard to capture the dimension in these cards, but trust me ... it's like MAGIC! I started by pressing the Wall Flower Impress-ion Press + Foil Plate into an A2 Cotton Watercolor Panel with Raven Hybrid Ink. I only need one panel since I will be cutting this to create two cards. Then, I pressed the Braided Waves Impress-ion Press + Foil Plate into two A2 Cotton Watercolor Panels with Alloy Hybrid Ink

I set the Braided Waves panels aside and worked with the Wall Flower Panel. I did simple Copic coloring to add color to the background. I used just 2 markers for each color - a dark and a light. I prefer to start with the darker shade and blend out with the light, but you can color however you like! Remember that LDRS Creative often puts coloring guides on the back of their packaging, so don't throw that away! Once my panel was colored, I cut it in half so that I could create two cards from one colored panel. 

I cut the colored panel in half and then added a thin black strip of cardstock to the top of each panel. I adhered these onto my Braided Waves pressed backgrounds. All that's left now is a sentiment! I die cut the word "thanks" from the Simply Word Dies six times and stacked three together so that I had two sentiments stacked three high. I adhered them to the right side of the cards and that's it!

I hope you enjoyed these easy cards! The entire LDRS Creative Summer Collection is available NOW! Check back tomorrow for another video tutorial. See you then!
