by May Sukyong Park

Hello friends, Norine back again, with a few cards to share that I made with the Fresh Cut Roses Stamp Set.

Fresh Cut Roses is a beautiful, recently released set of two floral images with several wedding-related sentiments, and one that I will love to use with watercolor paints, pencils or brush pens, or alcohol-based Artist Markers!

Card #1

This card uses the rose and buds stamp image and I stamped it twice, on the right and left edge of the watercolor paper panel. I used embossing ink to stamp and white embossing powder to heat set.

Then, I used both the 24 watercolor paint pan set and the 36 paint pan set to mix a variety of tints and shades for these flowers. I used a wet-on-wet painting technique, made easier to do by the mini-barriers created by heat embossing.

Finally, I stamped one of the sentiments from the Fresh Cut Roses stamp set onto the same colored cardstock as the mat paper, and heat embossed with Platinum Embossing Powder.

Card #2

This is a nifty trick for the times when you paint a whole design and don't love one part of it. Cut it off. Turn your back and never speak of it again. Or just toss it in the trash. No need for all the melodrama.

For the greeting on this card, I die cut the letters from the Tall Alpha Lowercase Stamp and dies, then stamped them with Obsidian Pigment Ink.

Card #3

For the leaves, I painted each individual shape with clean water, then dropped in two different shades of green paint and let them blend together. For the rose, I painted the entire bloom with clean water, and using the embossed lines to create barriers, dropped in a shade of pink that I had mixed in my paint palette. I was careful to drop the paint in the tiny corners where the shadows would be darkest and let them blend outward as the water dried.

All of the paintings are finished once they receive a splatter treatment using mixes of the same paint colors in the painted design.

If you're looking for a beautiful, suitable-for-any-occasion stamp set, that allows you the fun of painting or coloring, I hope you'll check this one out! Thank you so much for stopping by and have an amazing day!
