Hello stamping friends.
As I mentioned in previous posts, it's World Watercolour Month in July, so here's a watercolour birthday card for you using the Cottage Rose bundle from the Stampin Up 2022 Annual Catalogue.
The paper is the Abigail Rose DSP which is part of the same suite that includes the Cottage Rose bundle. It's called the Abigail Rose Suite, and you can find it on page 56/57 of the 2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. The sentiment is from the same set. The embellishments I have added are Linen Thread and one of the Brushed Metallic Dots on the folded DSP corner.
For the watercolouring, I have used ink from the inside of my ink pads and Water Painters. I used Blushing Bride for the flower, Garden Green for the leaves and a bit of Crumb Cake around the other foliage poking out behind the rose.
My style of watercolouring is a messy, vintage look and I don't always stay within the lines. I like that though and it's less pressure so more relaxing! I did an in depth video some time ago showing my style of watercolouring, so have a look if you would like more information about what I do. I LOVE watercolouring. It's my favourite way to add colour to cards.
You can also view lots of other examples of my watercoloured cards HERE.
If you are interested in more card ideas using the Abigail Rose suite, I have a 5 card instant download PDF class available for $15AUD (approx $10-$11 USD on today's currency exchange rates). You can find my PDF Instant Download Classes HERE.
I hope you like today's card. You can find all of the products I have used in my online store, or the paper copy of the Annual Catalogue.
