Nasturtiums Galore

Hi crafters

I thought I would share with you some of the samples I made for one of John Lockwood's recent shows on Hochanda TV.

As soon as I saw John's new Nasturtium designs I couldn't wait to use them.

These cards all use the Nasturtium Elements clear stamp set from Creative Expressions. The first design was coloured in using Comic Shimmer Watercolour Paints. 

I thought that this card looked like the flowers had been made from satin with gold embroidery thread stitched onto them. This was achieved by stamping several flower heads onto white vellum with clear Perfect Medium and then heat embossing with Cosmic Shimmer Brilliant Sparkle Gold embossing powder. 

The flower heads were then cut out and tinted using Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints.

Finally, a clean and simple style using the same Nasturtium flower heads, with the Butterfly stamp from John's Summers Child clear stamp set. The sentiment comes from the Larkspur Elements stamp set.

The Shopping List is below but should you have any questions please feel free to comment below. Your feedback is always much appreciated.
