Trio of Cards
Let’s start with a trio of cards I made featuring the Simple Roses Stamp Set.
To begin, I stamped several images onto a really long piece of watercolor paper in Embossing Ink. Next, I used Antique Gold Embossing Powder to emboss them. I used the markers from Autumn Festival Watercolor Brush Markers Set to color the images. Namely, Mango Smoothie, Orange Cream, Sea Forest, Yellow Ochre, and Tree Bark.
I fussy cut all the images as I didn’t want a white border. For the card above, I adhered the images with Glue Tape.
Next, I added tons of fine splatters of Jet Black Watercolor. You can use that from either the 36 Pan Watercolor Set or the 12 Pan Watercolor Set. And then, I added gold splatters from the Metallic Watercolor Set.
For the card above, I first ran my panel through the die-cutting machine, sandwiched with the Sphere Stencil. Then, I arranged my florals on foam tape. The photo below is a tad darker but shows you the texture of the dry embossing.
Next, I added splatters of both Jet Black and gold watercolors from their respective sets as mentioned above. All cards were made in a similar manner just styled differently. For this one, I fussy cut the sentiment out and popped it over the image.
As you can see, on this one, I did add a different shade as the buds were meant for another card.
I adhered the images directly. Then, I popped the sentiment with foam tape.
Pencil Coloring on Sweet Flowers
To start, I stamped the images from the Sweet Flowers Stamp Set onto Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock repeatedly in Permanent Black Crisp Ink. Then, I used a combination of Prismacolor pencils and Polychromos to color the flowers and the background.
I used a few pinks and yellows for the flowers. It took me a lot of time to color this! This was unplanned, but I like how it turned out.
Artist Marker Coloring on Sweet Flowers
My last card features a clean and simple looking card. And I have a process video to share with you, as well!
For this, I stamped the image in Frosty Pink Dye Ink onto Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock using a stamp platform. Next, I used Artist Markers in Peach Perfect, Rouge, and Blush to color the flowers. For the green bits, I used only Forest Glades and Frayed Leaf from the Green Fields Set.
Next, I placed the image back in the stamp positioner and stamped over it again, but this time, in Obsidian Pigment Ink. I used the coordinating die to die cut the image.
Next, I stamped the sentiment and added fine black paint splatters. Then, I adhered the image onto the panel. After this, I thought I could add more to this. Therefore, I stamped a couple of floral vines, colored them in, and die cut them. I adhered these with foam tape next to the main image. Then, I adhered the entire panel onto the card base.
