Watercolored Lacy Scrolls

by Marika

Hello! It's Marika here to share a card with Lacy Scrolls. This set is one of the older ones but it's really one of my favourites. I used it it to stamp a pattern to a watercolour paper and then added details with Distress Inks. Here is my card for today:

I used thick watercolour paper as my card panel and I stamped the the Lacy Scrolls with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Then I watercolored in the shadows with Rusty Hinge and Gathered Twigs Distress inks. For the leaves I only used Gathered Twigs to add a bit of shading to make the leaves look more “watercolored” than just stamped. The sentiment was firstly stamped with black pigment ink onto a brown card stock and then heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder. To finish up my card I used white paper twine to make a bow to draw attention to the sentiment.

If anyone is interested on a video tutorial on this, I do have good news. A tutorial on the technique how to colour these flowers is coming live in the near future. I don't know the exact date but I'm hoping it to be soon. :) Thank you for you patience.

Thank you so much for visiting us today and hopefully your day is beautiful as ever!
