Watercolor Background Card with Inked Flora

by Sveta Fotinia

Hello! Sveta here. I'm a summer person so, for me, it's sad that it's over and I want to make a little throwback by sharing a new card that I made with the gorgeous Inked Flora Stamp Set.

SvetaFotinia 7628I used the Industrial Diamond Crisp Dye Ink to stamp my background. The style of the stamp set and this ink color created a look hand-drawn pencil image. I stamped the flowers and leaves close to each other in order to fill all the empty spaces on the card.

SvetaFotinia 7629Then I started to color background with watercolors using Altenew's Watercolor 36 Pan Set. I chose light yet eye-catching colors. I was inspired by my friend's t-shirt so much that I used the same color combo for this card (if you follow me on IG you probably saw that t-shirt ).

SvetaFotinia 7633For me, it's always a challenge to add a sentiment that will not be lost in this kind of background. The idea came to me from a box that I have that says: “die-cuts that I can use someday”. It was a negative die-cut that I made using the Script Words Die Set and silver cardstock.

SvetaFotinia 7640Adding a yellow bow was the final accord to this card to highlight the color combination that I chose.

Hope you liked this card and got some ideas! Have a great day!Altenew post footer
