Supplies used:


This card started out by stamping Altenew's Bouquet of Love stamp set with Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink on watercolor paper and then heat embossed it with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder. The floral images were colored in with Altenew's Woodless Watercolor Pencils directly onto the paper, and then picking up color with a wet brush from the pencil's tip to move the colors around. After this dried, I watercolored all of the flowers with additional pink, red and gold watercolor from the Gansai Tambi Gem Colors watercolor set. I also splattered watercolor over the images and let it all dry. The image was die cut with the Altenew's Bouquet of Love die set and was set aside.

The background was created by die cutting the nested rectangular dies from Paper Roses' Lots and Lots of Rectangles 2.0 metal cutting die set out of watercolor paper. I then reattached all of the die cuts and watercolor smooshed them with Lumberjack Plaid Distress Oxide mixed with water and then splattered over this with more pink, red, gold and green watercolor from the Gem Colors watercolor set and then ink blending around the edges of the outside edges of the panel with more of the Lumberjack Plaid Distress Oxide. After everything had dried, I glued the floral die cut to the panel. 

A sentiment from the Bouquet of Love stamp set was stamped on a scrap of watercolor paper with more of the Nocturne VersaFine Clair ink and heat embossed again with more Holographic embossing powder. It was cut out with my paper trimmer, with the edges at an angle. I then ink blended around the edges with more of the Lumberjack Plaid Distress Oxide. I added some Snowfall Christmas Distress Grit Paste around the edges of the sentiment strip to add some sparkle. I glued a couple layers of scrap cardstock behind the sentiment to add dimension before gluing it onto the panel. The Ton Stamp's Diamond Gem Rhinestones were glued on te bottom left and top right part of the panel.

I decided at this point that adding this to a white cardbase would be boring, so I ink blended a white A2-sized card base with more Lumberjack Plaid Distress Oxide. The panel with the floral die cut and sentiment was glued onto the cardbase, and the parts of the floral image that went outside the card were trimmed to finish the card.

We hope that you are able to join us for our challenge over at Shopping Our Stash and thanks for reading!
