Erum here today with a new card and a process video featuring the Inked Flora Stamp Set.
Sometimes, you don't have a lot of time on your hands to make a fancy looking card. But if there's a special occasion, like say a wedding or an engagement party, and you want to give something special but don't have enough time, then today's tutorial is perfect for you.
To start, I stamped the flowers from the Inked Flora Stamp Set with Clear Embossing Ink and then heat embossed it with Antique Gold Embossing Powder. Next, I started to watercolor these with the Watercolor 36 Pan Set using Cotton Candy and Coral Berry watercolors for the pink flower. For the orange-yellow flower, I used a mix of yellows and oranges from the palette.
To add color, I first applied a light color wash on the entire image and then dropped in concentrated pigment. You can watch the video to have an idea. After I was done watercoloring, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies. Next, I cut a panel for my card front from Woodgrain Powder Cardstock. I began, arranging my floral elements on this panel and whatever excess was left, I cut it out and reused them to add more foliage to the card front.
Once I was done, I added a few, fine black paint splatters. Then I heat embossed a sentiment onto a strip of vellum and adhered it onto the card front. I also added a thin strip of Gold Glitter Tape to this strip.
Add a celebratory sentiment and you are good to go.
