It’s Kelly Latevola here and I’m back with a fun floral arrangement that uses a ton of products from Stephanie Low’s Cool Vibes Designer Series. I love so many of the elements in this series it was hard to choose which to use!
I started by stamping out all my images in Copic safe ink then I dove right into the coloring. I went with a golden yellow and then added purple since they are complimentary colors. I love purple with teal and bright green so those were easy additions to round out my color palette.
Once the coloring was finished I put the coordinating dies in place and ran them though my Platinum machine. I also die cut my Thanks sentiment out of black cardstock to tie in all the black outline stamping.
I set my images aside to create my background. I used several distress ink colors to create a gradient from the top left fading off to the bottom right. I did my signature water and perfect pearls splattered in the background to add interest.
I arranged my flowers and feathers and began adhering them to my background using both flat and dimensional adhesive. A few clear droplets completed the card . . . or so I thought.

Like I said in the video there definitely wasn’t anything “wrong” with the first card. It just felt a bit disjointed to me. Which version is your favorite?
