The sun is shining here in Melbourne today, and it's a bright 27C day, so how about a bright happy card to start the week? I love my garden and flowers, so Remarkable You was one of the stamp sets I "needed" from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.
The base card is Cucumber Crush, one of this years in colours. I have embossed it with the Lovely Lace embossing folder. My floral image is water-coloured with an Aqua-painter and Watermelon Wonder ink from the inside of the ink pad. Love these colours together. All products are linked at the end of the post.
Stamping Tips for Today's Card:
Our watercolor paper is great quality and that really makes a difference when you are shading with an Aqua-painter and ink. I colour the whole image and then go over and over to add more colour. As the paper is high quality, you don't get any paper peeling off from overworking it.
- I've just popped the flower section up with a couple of Dimensionals - the stem was just adhered with Snail.
- To cut the shimmer edge, I used the Circles Framelits. Cut the small circle out first and then the larger around it. The black and white script paper is the same size as the large circle.
- The sentiment set I have used today is Happy Happenings. It's one on my favourites from the Annual Catalogue. Covers lots of different sentiments and fits some punches too.
Here's the gorgeous Remarkable You set. Available in wood mount or clear mount (links at end of post).
