Hello crafty friends! Hope that y’all have had a great weekend with some crafty time! I’m here today to share my first post as part of the ScrapbookPal Design team! I was lucky enough to guest design for them last month, you can see the post here! If you know me, then you probably know that I love creating with floral stamps! So of course I jumped at the chance to create with the Pink Fresh Studio’s Dahlia Bunch stamp set. I usually do most of my coloring with COPIC markers but this stamp seemed the perfect one to watercolor!
To create this card I :
Stamped the image from the Dahlia Bunch stamp set using watermark ink and embossed it with gold embossing powder onto watercolor paper. Next I chose out the color palette I wanted to use on the card. To watercolor I used Distress Inks in worn lipstick (mini cube), spun sugar (mini cube), wilted violet (mini cube), shaded lilac (mini cube), shabby shutters (mini cube), and mowed lawn (mini cube).
I watercolored the embossed image by smooshing the distress ink on to a smooth surface and adding water before bringing it to paper. Once it dried, I diecut it out using the coordinating die.
While the watercolored panel was drying, I started working on the background for the card. I picked out the matching lighter shades in distress oxides to create an ink blended panel. I used peeled paint, spun sugar, and shaded lilac. To add some depth to the background, I added splatters of white and gold paint. I also die cut a panel from using the Pinkfresh Studio Simple Hexagons and splattered it with some gold paint too.
After all the layers dried I assembled the card by layered the ink blended background and the die cut layer, and add the watercolored florals using foam tape. I finished off the card with some jewels and a sentiment from the Pinkfresh Studio Pop Out Diamonds embossed onto a piece of black cardstock.
Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something!
Till the next time, take care!
