Just a quick post today to share with you this one-layer thank you card I put together. I fell in love with this card I made not too long ago, and used that as inspiration for this one.
I used the outline flower image from the Beautiful Day stamp set and some masking paper, to create a focal point of layered flowers at the bottom right of my watercolor panel. I then added a whole lot of pink and purple-toned watercolor in several layers. I made sure that the highest saturation of color was focused on the flowers themselves, but that was about as fussy as I got with it.
When the panel was dry, I cut it down to 4.25″ x 5″ size using a stitched rectangle die. Then, I stamped my sentiment from the SSS Handwritten Floral Greetings set using Intense Black Ink (I also used this ink for stamping the flowers because it’s waterproof). At this point I realized I need to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to the card, so I masked off my sentiment and added some black ink splatters here and there. I also used my Pico Embellisher in black to add some life back to the flower centers, which had gotten lost underneath all of the watercolor.
I hope everyone’s week is off to a wonderful start!
