I have a water-coloured card today, using the Forever Blossoms stamp set from the 2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. This is such a pretty blossom image don't you think? I have coloured the blossoms in Blushing Bride and Flirty Flamingo, which I think is more the colours of nectarine or plum blossom.

Using die cut shapes can really elevate your card design. I have used Ornate Layers Dies to cut out the water-coloured image, and the gorgeous Encircled in Beauty dies for the Flirty Flamingo piece underneath. You can view all the products I have used in today's card using the links at the end of the post. My base card is Gray Granite and I have stamped the same image on the top left and bottom right, in Gray Granite ink.

The sentiment I have used is from Best Year stamp set, which is also in the current Annual Catalogue. I stamped it onto a scrap of Fluid 100 Watercolour paper using Crumb Cake ink, trimmed it and used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch on the end. I also lightly sponged the edges of the sentiment label with Crumb Cake ink using a sponge dauber. Champagne Rhinestones finish off my card.

Here's another look at my colour combination for today.

I think Flirty Flamingo goes beautifully with greys, and I really like your choice of Gray Granite, Claire. The watercoloured panel looks great die cut with the Ornate Layers die, and the background stamping adds really pretty detail to your lovely card.

What a stunning colour combination, Claire - love all your layering too and the little details such as the stamped background and sponged edges of the sentiment.

This is really pretty, Claire. I love all the die cut layers and stamping on the card base. Beautiful watercolouring of the flowers and how great are those Encircled in Beauty dies?!!!

That blossom is perfect for the Flirty Flamingo challenge Claire, and the lovely layers, so well-thought out.

Your blossoms are coloured so beautifully, and I love the die you've selected to crop the panel. Very pretty card.

WOW!!! What a beautiful card. I love the soft colors of it.

I have looked at your card numerous times and just go WOW that colouring is so gorgeous! I love the layout and the stamping on the base card too! So pretty Claire! Such a gorgeous design!

Such a pretty card Claire and the water colouring is lovely. I've always been a fan of pink and grey.

This is very pretty Claire. I really like the Gray Granite card base. Pink and grey were our wedding colours, all those 35 years ago! I still love the combination today.

Gorgeous colour combination you have used on your card.

Stunning card Claire, beautifully coloured. I love this stamp set but had forgotten about it. Thanks for reminding me that I need to go dig it out and give it some love.
