Erum here with a new card featuring the Perfectly Perfect Stamp Set.
The color combination for this card comes from a card that I created before joining Altenew. You can view it HERE.
First, I stamped several flowers and leaves onto watercolor paper with Clear Embossing Ink. Then I heat embossed these with the Antique Gold Embossing Powder.
I used the new Watercolor 36 Pan Set to color the images. For the flowers, I used Cotton Candy Watercolor and Grapevine Watercolor. To color, I applied water to the petals with the help of a water brush and spread around diluted pigment of Cotton Candy Watercolor. Next, I added Grapevine Watercolor pigment closer to the center of the flower to show depth.
After coloring all the flowers, I moved onto the leaves for which I used Espresso Watercolor. When the images were dry, I used the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine to die cut these.
Next, I used the Our Family Frame Die and die cut a frame out of Spicy Yoghurt Cardstock. I used foam tape to pop this onto the card front. This will be a decorative element to “frame” my floral bouquet.
I arranged all the floral elements on the card front by adhering them on different heights of foam tape. Next, I heat embossed a sentiment onto black cardstock and applied Gold Glitter Tape on one edge of the sentiment tab.
In the end, I added a few rose gold sequins.
That is all from my side today. I hope you enjoy the video below or over on YouTube.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your card today, Erum! You have an amazing gift for choosing unique color combinations and putting them together in such an elegant way. Thank your mother for me for explaining “pink tea” to us. I’m going to see if I can find some here in Northern USA to try it myself – it sounds delicious! Great job today – I always look forward to your posts and videos!
Thank you for sharing. I am going to do this with my new Altenew watercolors. I am just learning watercoloring. Did you cover the flowers and leaves with a coating of water first and then use the color? Thank you.
