Hi there and a very happy Thursday to you.
I do hope the weather where you are is good, but if it’s anything like it is here in Wales you may need a bit of warming up. So I’m sharing a card that my brighten your morning a little.
Today I’m using one of my ‘oldie but a goodie’ set from Altenew- Watercolor Wonders…
I was inspired by an older card I made (you can find it HERE), so I used the same floral stamp set and same colours but I mixed up the technique- this time I used Distress Inks as watercolour.
I stamped the first layers of the images in Distress Ink onto some watercolour card- Cracked Pistachio for the leaves, Fossilised Amber for the smaller flowers and Abandoned Coral for the large flower. Once they were stamped I used a wet paint brush to soften the colours and added more colour into places where I felt there would be more shadow. Once this first layer was done I let it dry.
Once dry I then moved on to the second layer, using the same technique of stamping in Distress Ink and moving the ink with a damp paint brush- Peacock Feathers for the leaves, Wild Honey for the smaller flowers and Candied Apple for the large flower. I then left this to dry.
I added a third layer to the large flower using Picked Raspberry using the same technique as with the others. For the flower centres I used Black Soot.
I used a mix of sets for the sentiment the large ‘hello’ is from Halftone Hello and I stamped this first before stamping the rest of the sentiment that I took from Laced Up.
Thank you so much for stopping by today I really do hope you enjoyed your visit!
Hope you have a beautiful day and I hope to see you again soon!
