I LOVE a good floral image to colour, so I was all over the new Stampin' Up! set Remarkable You when it appeared in the 2015 Annual Catalogue. Today's card features one of the flowers (which we think is a lotus flower or waterlily) water coloured, along with a greeting from the set. It's based on this week's Stamping and Blogging Design Team sketch SB114.
Here's the colour combination I have used today.
Tips for recreating this card:
- I water coloured the floral image using an Aqua painter (see all supplies below) and the ink inside the lid of the Rose Red ink pad.
- Stamp your image in Jet Black Stazon so you can watercolour without the image outline smudging.
- Use our high quality Watercolor Paper for a great result. It really does make a difference as you can blend over and over without the paper pilling.
- The Triple Banner Punch makes cutting the banner ends on this card a breeze.
- Both flowers were cut out using our super sharp Paper Snips. The left hand flower is popped up with Dimensional foam dots (not the stem though).
- Stamp an extra bit of the leaf pattern onto Cucumber Crush and cut out a few leaves to layer over the greeting banner.
