These are the three cards I made with the recently release Paint-A-Flower: Chamomile stamp set. You might remember the first cards I made with this stamp set over here? (I think maybe I like these more!?)
Card #1 is stamped on Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and colored with alcohol based Artist Markers. Then I masked the flower/pitcher and ink blended some background color to help the petal pop as really white!
I fussy cut and Xacto-knifed the bottom of the pitcher and the stamped card panel and layer it over some patterned paper and added a strip of contrasting cardstock. The sentiment is stamped from the same Chamomile stamp set.
Card #2 makes use of the same pitcher/flower mask that I used for the card above, and allowed me to make a stamped scene using both images in the Chamomile stamp set. I watercolored the scene with Altenew 24 and 36 Pan Paint sets, trying to keep the colors light and airy, and not worrying too much about details. I did add more leaves behind the teacup flowers with a simple paint brush stroke.
I assembled the card very simply by combining the painted panel with some coordinating patterned paper and die cutting a hello greeting with the Handwritten Hello die and some gold cardstock.
Lastly, I slapped three colors of watercolor paint onto watercolor paper and let it dry. Then I stamped the teacup image over the dried color, using colored ink pads that correspond to the paint color beneath. I stamped again with embossing ink and heat set with clear embossing powder.
I die cut the greeting with the Bold Thanks Die, then the tags with the Terrific Tags dies set, and stamped the smaller greeting from the Sentiment Strips Stamp set. I dyed the ribbon using a coordinating shade of watercolor ink.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a lovely day!
