Hello, and welcome back! Today is Part 2 of the Happy Watercolor It's Versatile series. With this series of cards, I wanted to show several different ways to add color to the flowers in this set. Today is all about real watercolor! I stamped the floral image in Jet Black Stazon onto Watercolor Paper. I used my Aqua Painters and ink squeezed onto the top of the inkpads to color in the flower. The colors here are Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry and Gumball Green. This is one of my favorite things to do with stamps. I love Watercolor paintings, but I'm not good at drawing in 3D. So, I love to take the beatiful artwork from one of our stamps, and watercolor it. I feel like I made a little painting! I stitched the panel to a piece of the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper. I stamped the greeting in Jet Black Stazon Ink onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, cut it into a little banner shape and pierced a little hole in it. I tied it to the floral panel with White Baker's Twine ending in a bow, and added a small piece of dimensional to adhere the greeting in place.
The card is made from Daffodil Delight Cardstock, and is covered with a piece of the polka-dot patterned paper stitched around the outer edge. I added another strip of the beautiful orange and yellow watercolor paper to the center of the card. Then, the floral piece is adhered to it with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Well, that wraps up today. I have at least one more card in this series, and an idea for another one floating around in my head. Thanks for stopping by!
