Hello! Happy Monday! I found out that the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Lush Garden was back in stock so I thought I share the process video for this card that I created during the release. This card has both the watercolored florals and even a few stenciled ones. But what sets this apart is the hand-drawn element I added in form of grid lines and also loosely drawn outlines.

Start by stamping the two flowers and three leaves from the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Lush Garden onto A2 Watercolor Cardstock in Obsidian Ink. Next, smush some of the Coral Bliss and Canyon Clay Dye Inks onto the Watercolor Palette. Now, apply water to a petal and then dilute the Coral Bliss Dye Ink before applying it to the petal. Similarly, at the tip of the petal, apply Canyon Clay Dye Ink pigment. Color the entire flower in the same manner, coming back in to add concentrated pigment closer to the flower center to show depth.

For the leaves, use the colors from the Nature's Wonder Dye Inks family.

I wanted to add a floral bunch and for this, I had to use the coloring stencil. For the first layer, I used the Wisteria, Puffy Heart, and a smidge of Canyon Clay Dye Inks. For the second layer, I used Purple Wine and Ultraviolet Dye Inks. And lastly, for the third layer, I used the Andromeda Dye Ink.

To add interest and dimension to the stenciled image, I added an outline to the floral bunch. This was very irregular and sketchy. I also added a few dots in both white and black to the flower center. Then to reduce a bit of the bold look of the floral bunch, I added a few white splatters using white chalk paint.

The second hand-drawn element I added is the irregular, sketchy grid in the background using a T-ruler. This is so random and not even properly spaced. I used the Fine Liner Pen Set (005) to do this.

Next, I added controlled splatters using a Jet Black Artist Alcohol Marker. And a few black paint splatters as well. Then I adhered the flowers and leaves with foam tape. To finish, I stamped the sentiment and adhered a few enamel dots.

Thank you for stopping by.
