Relaxing Watercolor Florals with Lydia

Hello there everyone! Happy release day! Lydia here, and I'm so excited to be part of this amazing collaboration release with Altenew and Sarah Simon AKA The Mint Gardener. Relaxing Watercolor Florals To start, I stamped the large image from Peony & Lilac Swag Stamp Set onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ panel of Watercolor Cardstock using Embossing Ink. Before heat setting using Pure White Embossing Powder. Once I had embossed 2 of the same image I went ahead and watercolored my panel.

I used Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set but you can use whatever watercolor medium you have! Tip: To make my flowers ‘pop' more I watercolored the background using a vibrant blue color. 20240530 185620 1 The sentiment is from Warm & Fuzzy Stamp Set from The Mint Gardener collection. I white heat embossed this onto a piece of Pink Diamond Cardstock. To add a little more interest, I added Clear Enamel Dots around the sentiment to draw the eye a little. 20240530 185614 1
