My second post for today… and I have couple of cards with flowers – one using stamping and another using die-cutting. But they have a couple of things in common – I have used plain watercolored, brushstroke background for both, and the main focus of the cards, the flowers are also watercolored.
For my first card –
I first colored the background using PTI Tropical Teal and a few scrap pieces of watercolor paper with my watercolors with the desired colors. After they dried, I used Ellen Hutson Bold Blooms to die cut the flowers and leaves. I then stamped the sentiment, from Altenew Label Love, using Memento Tuxedo Black, on another piece of scrap cardstock – thank god for my MISTI, I had to stamp it twice to get good coverage, and I wouldn’t have gotten good results without it! 🙂
I then trimmed the background panel and foam mounted it to the card base. After adhering the flowers, I added some gold string before mounting the sentiment. I also added a few transparent sequins for embellishing.
By the way, the rose on the top right is supposed to be pink – my photo editing software just wouldn’t get away from the red shade, no matter what I tried! 😦
For my second card, I used stamping as the focus –
I first colored the background a light peach. Once this was relatively dry, I stamped the clustered flowers from WPlus9 Watercolored Anemonies using PTI Sweet Blush, after stamping it off once, on a watercolor panel. I then colored over this using PTI Hibiscus Burst, Spiced Marmalade and Tumbled Glass.
Once done, I trimmed the edges and added the doilies. I stamped the sentiment from The Craft’s Meow Side By Side in Memento Tuxedo Black on a scrap piece of watercolor paper, trimmed it and mounted it with some gold string sandwiched between the sentiment and the panel. I used a mix of sequin + rhinestone to embellish.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
