As promised, here is the card that I worked on last week. I showed some sneak peeks of this on Facebook, and now you can see it in its entirety. :-)
I embossed this gorgeous flower from Art Neko's Flowers and Whimsy sheet with clear embossing powder onto some Fabriano Studio Hot Press watercolor paper. I then pulled out some Zig Clean Color markers and had a blast watercoloring these flowers.
I started with a pale blue around the edges of the flowers and leaves. After I let it dry, I then added some deep green color to the edges of the leaves, and then I used a wet paintbrush to pull that color out to the rest of the area. I love that splotchy, uneven-ness of watercoloring. :-) I waited again for the green ink to dry before starting in on the flowers. I actually used a deep red color, but when I pulled the color out with a wet paintbrush, it turned into this vibrant pink color. That was a fun surprise! :-)
After the piece dried completely, I cut it down and matted it with some Garden Green cardstock. I found this magenta ribbon that coordinated perfectly with my flowers, so I tied it around the bottom and then adhered this piece with some foam tape onto a Sahara Sand card base.
The sentiment, from Art Neko's Friendship, Get Well, and Thank You's sheet, was stamped with Garden Green ink onto a scrap piece of the watercolor paper. I cut it out with a circle die and then adhered it with foam tape next to the flowers.
Go check out the flowers and sentiments over at Art Neko. I think you'd be pleasantly surprised at the variety of stamps there. :-)
I hope you have a wonderful week!
