Galactic Watercolor Florals Card Making Tutorial

by Lydia Evans

Hello there, everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here. Today, I'll be showing a fun take on galaxy watercolor backgrounds and using it instead for die-cut floral images.

To start, I took a large piece of watercolor cardstock. I added water to both sides before dropping in different colors from Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set. When I was happy with the amount of color, I added splatter using Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set and then left the piece to dry. Once dry, I added more splatter using the Metallic Watercolors to add more stars and sparkle. I heat set this before cutting the flower layers from Watercolor Garden Layering Die Set from it. Once these were cut, I added Antique Gold Pigment Ink around the outside of the die-cuts before adhering them together.

The leaves and flower centers were cut from Gold Foil Cardstock. And I have to say I'm just loving that shine. The sentiment is from Fancy Greetings Stamp Set and was embossed using Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder onto a Jet Black Cardstock card panel.

To see how this card came together please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:

This was an interesting technique. I enjoyed it. I’m afraid this is good-bye. I can’t get into my YouTube account or my Instagram and have contacted Google several times to no avail. Allot of your blogs have “not secure” on them so that I can’t access them.
