3 floral backgrounds for plant lady

Have you seen the new Leading Lady - Plant Lady by Brandi Kincaid? Brandi's adorable Leading Ladies are quickly becoming favorites in my craft room! I love that they are perfect for practicing my Copic coloring skills (and goodness knows I need practice) and they are also really versatile! Today I have 3 floral backgrounds to share that are perfect for Plant Ladies!

#1. Stamped
Plant Lady looks pretty with just a few daisies stamped around her. I used the same daisy she's holding but just masked it so the stem would not stamp. When I accidentally did stamp part of the stem, I used a black pen to create another petal.
And my favorite color of Nuvo Jewel Strawberry Coulis drops made the perfect daisy centers and confetti.

#2. Die Cut
Inspired by the gorgeous stitching of Jill Dewey Hawkins (if you haven't seen her work, run to her blog Fastest Turtle as soon as you're finished here, LOL), I stitched glassine flowers to my background. I used the flower die from the new Rustic Botanicals set and the die comes with a smaller circle flower nested inside so I used them together for a daisy-type flower. I die cut the flower again from cardstock, leaving the middle intact. I colored it with Copics and added the sentiment.

#3. Painted
This inked and stamped background was inspired by the stunning art of Alisa Burke (check her out too). I painted first with Distress Oxide inks and then stamped over the top. Any watercolors or even acrylic paint would work nicely. It's a super easy and striking background. 

Thanks for stopping by! 

Hugs!
