PROJECTS WITH PRODUCTS FROM TODAY’S RELEASE:
For my Paint-A-Flower cards this month, I didn’t take the traditional route of stamping and coloring or painting. Instead, I chose a more graphic and decorative approach.
For my first card, I stamped parts of the outline image all over an A2-sized watercolor card panel, filling in all the areas and heat setting with white embossing powder.
Then I painted in the entire panel with shades of olive green, turquoise green, blue, and lavender, letting the colors pool, blend, and interact with each other. I did (sort of) focus the greens on the leaves but then used a mix of the other shades on the petals and background areas.
I debated the variety of techniques I could used to add the sentiment, but didn’t want to cover any more of the lovely stamped or painted design, so in the end, I decided to try simply stamping and heat embossing right over top of what I had already stamped and heat embossed, and I really love the look! To support the black greeting, I added a few black enamel dots.
For my second card, I wanted to stay with the same general color scheme, so I started by painting a bunch of strips of watercolor cardstock with the same shades of paint as I’d used on the first card.
I trimmed the painted strips into varying widths and taped them together with washi tape and double-sided adhesive on the back. Then I put the cardstock stripped panel into the MISTI and stamped a single outlined image with embossing ink and heat set with white embossing powder.
I added the greeting (included in the set) to a strip near the bottom, and then trimmed the panel and matted it with a piece of coordinating cardstock before adhering it all to a folded white cardstock card base. I finished the card with the addition of some clear and white hole-less sequins.
