Blooms and Watercoloring

PE: Fusion Challenge Honorable Mention

Hello! Couple of cards this time, with ways to use watercoloring with flowers.

For my first card, I used watercoloring to the flower –

Magnolias For HerAfter stamping the flowers from Altenew Magnolias For Her in Dried Marigold distress ink, I used Dried Marigold and Abandoned Coral distress inks to color the flowers. I then added some highlights using color pencils and also added the stem for one of the colors. The stripes come from Winnie & Walter Scenery: Stripes, which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, Rich Cocoa, Potter’s Clay inks. The sentiment is from Altenew Magnolias For Her, which I stamped in Memento Potter’s Clay. I then die cut two sides using a die from Paper Smooches Borders 2 and mounted it on a kraft card base. I then added some gold glitter stickles and a few gold sequins to embellish.

Blooms and WatercoloringAfter watercoloring, I added the flowers and leaves from Ellen Hutson Bold Blooms and added the glitter, sequins and the rhinestones. I then added the blue patterned washi tape behind (by first adding it to a strip of cardstock) and mounted it to a black card base. I had actually forgotten to stamp the sentiment and only did it after I mounted the watercolor panel – and since it didn’t stamp well, I had to go over the entire sentiment again with my black pen! πŸ˜€ Thankfully, the sentiment is big and I could do that easily!! πŸ˜›

  1. I absolutely love your Fusion card. The colours are perfect for our photo and love the design-the touch of washi is inspired. I often have to do the same as you and go over the stamp with a pen but you can’t tell. I am so pleased you joined us at Fusion with this delight of a card x
