Tropical Flower Ladies

Darkroom Door - Friday, January 05, 2018

Hi there! It's Belinda Spencer with you again today sharing more projects using the Tropical Flowers Stamp Set! I am loving this set and can't seem to stop using it! Today I have another card and art journal page to show you. 


1. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock 15cm x 22cm. Fold in half to form the card base.

2. Cut a piece of smooth white cardstock 10.5cm x 14.5cm. Apply Neon Purple Hero Arts Neon Dye Ink to the Fallen Leaves Background Stamp. Stamp on this piece. Use an ink blending tool to apply Wilted Violet Distress Ink. Ink the edges with the Wilted Violet Ink also. Stick down on the card base.

3. Cut another piece of smooth white cardstock 9.5cm x 13.5cm. Stamp the Scratches Background Stamp on this piece using the Neon Purple ink. Use the ink blending tool with the Wilted Violet ink again to apply the colour to this piece. Ink the edges also. Stick down on the card front.

4. On a separate piece of smooth white cardstock, apply the Strawberry Lady Line Art Stamp using Jet Black Archival ink. Use watercolour pencils to add colour to her face and blend with a soft wet paintbrush. Dry with a heat gun and then fussy cut removing the strawberry from her head. Stick the head onto the card front.

5. Stamp about 13 of the small frangipani flowers on the extra piece of cardstock using the Jet Black ink. Colour these with the watercolour pencils also. Blend the colour with the soft wet paintbrush. Dry with a heat gun and then fussy cut. Stick down on the 'Frangipani Lady'.

6. Stamp three butterflies and colour with the watercolour pencils as before. Dry with a heat gun, fussy cut and stick down on the card front.

7. Stamp the sentiment using Rose Madder Archival Ink. Fussy cut and add to the card front using 3D foam.

One of my favourite things to do right now is practice drawing faces in my art journal inspired by the stunning art work of Jane Davenport. I have in fact been learning to draw faces again in her fabulous workshops which you can find on her website here: I was totally inspired by the beautiful Tropical Flowers Stamp Set to create a 'Tropical Girl' in my journal


1. Sketch out your girl in your art journal. (I have used the small Jane Davenport art journal).

2. Stamp some of the tropical flowers from the Tropical Flowers Stamp Set in her hair using Jet Black Archival Ink. Dry with a heat gun.

3. Apply Distress Inks to an acrylic block or heat resistant craft sheet. Use a soft wet paintbrush to pick up the ink and paint the flower images.

4. Paint the rest of the girl using whatever mediums you prefer. Here I have used a combination of watercolour pencils as well as Jane Davenport products. Use a white fine point Sharpie paint pen to doodle around the flowers to 'anchor' them into the hair.

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Tropical Flowers Rubber Stamp Set
Archival Ink Jet Black
Distress Ink: Carved Pumpkin, Festive Berries, Picked Raspberry,  Squeezed Lemonade

I hope you love this fabulous stamp set as much as me and you are inspired to create your own Tropical style projects.
