Hey Everybody! Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm so excited to have you here today because today is World Card Making Day! Pretty great day if you're asking me. To celebrate the occasion I am blog hopping with a phenomenally talented group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators. Just wait until you see what everyone has made...
For my card I decided to do some gold heat embossing along with some watercoloring. I've been doing a lot of this lately but it's hard to stop when the results can be so stunning. My flower image is from the Remarkable You Stamp Set and it is perfect for watercoloring because of the big, full leaves.
I used Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight inks on the petals and Lemon Lime Twist and Emerald Envy on the stem and leaf. These are some of my favorite color combos for watercoloring because they blend into the most spectacular colors. I heat embossed my sentiment in gold on vellum. Then I layered it on top of a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, Gold Foil and a Whisper White background that was dry embossed with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder. I added Black Metallic Thread and Iridescent Sequins to finish the card off.
The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set (so many great sentiments in that set). My card base is Thick Whisper White with a mat of Basic Black cardstock.
I've made a video tutorial on how I watercolored this flower. If you haven't tried watercoloring before I hope that the tips I share in the video will help you get off to a good start. Enjoy!
