Hi there! I have a gorgeous card to share with you featuring the Sunflower Bundle 3D Embossing Folder.

Start by embossing an A2 Watercolor Loose Cardstock Sheet with  Sunflower Bundle 3D Embossing Folder. Next, use the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set to color the embossed panel. To begin, apply water generously onto the petals of the flower. Drop in the lightest yellow pigment which is Pocket Full of Sunshine. Cover the entire petal surface with this color wash.

Next, apply Summer Afternoon pigment and be careful while applying pigment this time as to not go out of the “lines” perse. Then, while the area is still wet, apply a more pigment Summer Afternoon watercolor. But this time, apply it only around the flower center. Because the paint is still wet, the watercolor will flow on its own into the grooves and ridges. For the petals that are behind, you can add more pigment there.

Lastly, drop in Fiery Sunset pigment closer to the flower center. Do not overwork the image. the pigment will flow on its own, you will end up with a beautiful shade.

Similarly, add Rain Forest pigment to the leaves as a base layer and then add a darker green, Tropical Forest pigment, closer to the base of the leaf and let it spread. For the flower center, start by adding a light color wash of Fall harvest pigment. Next, I will add Delectable Delight pigment and spread it out. After this, I will add Coffee Break pigment and this I will drop in a C shape to create a dome-like effect.

For the background, I will mix a bit of brown to my green and start adding it as a light color wash and build it up. I will create puddles of this paint near the flowers and leaves.

Final Touches

You can dry the panel with your heat tool or leave it overnight to dry. Once dry, I will add tons of splatters of greens, and even a few yellow/orange ones. Then dry the panel again and ad fine black paint splatters.

Adhere a heat embossed sentiment, this is from the True Friends stamp set. And a few sequins and a little bit of metallic thread.
