Hello everyone! I made these cards not too long ago and finally got the video footage edited and uploaded (it's a long video for this one :)):
I got this fabulous Mama Elephant Freesia stamp set not too long ago and have been itching to ink it up. After googling the flower (b/c I am clueless when it comes to flowers, or plants in general really) and seeing that it can pretty much be any color possible I couldn't just settle on making one card with one color - so I made 4.
I stamped all the images onto Canson XL watercolour paper with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them with detail white embossing powder.
I used my Tombow markers and a Silver Size 6 brush to watercolour all of them in. I kept the backgrounds soft with diluted color and then coloured directly onto the watercolour paper with the markers before pulling the color out with the wet brush.
The die cut sentiments are from My Favorite Things, I created ombre washes then die cut them to match the colors I used on the flowers.
I used the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangles Die-namics to die cut all the watercolour panels - I LOVE this Die-namics set and it's one of my go-to's when creating cards like this. It gives the extra detail of the fun stitched lines without needing to add any extra layers.
I finished off the insides of all the cards by stamping the Freesia image again and then stamping the sentiment from the set with black ink and that was it!
