Hello everyone! I wanted some time to de-stress and chill the other night so I pulled out one of the Suzy's Mothers & Flowers Paintable Prints and did some watercoloring with Distress Inks. I didn't get a chance to make it into a card until yesterday - and so here's the finished card and video:
After I'd watercolored in the flowers and let them dry I dotted on some Copic Opaque White acrylic paint (that I thin down with water) to create highlights and texture, then cut the image out with scissors and a craft knife.
I also decided to decorate a coordinating envelope - I'm always telling you all how much I like having coordinating envelopes and how much nicer they look in the main - but I rarely, if ever do it LOL! So I'm trying to change that ;). I bought some fun colors on envelopes that I showed in my last haul video, and decided a Doll Pink one would look great with this card.
I used the new Sending Flowers stamp set to heat emboss the frame and lines and "Happy Mail For" sentiment onto the front of the envelope with Hero Arts white embossing powder.
On the flap of the envelope I stamped the little cluster of flowers from the same Sending Flowers set using SSS Doll Pink ink, and stamped the flower centres with white pigment ink.
On the card I created a watercolour background using Distress watercolour paper and more Distress Inks. After it was dry I die cut it with the largest SSS Stitched Rectangle die then popped the flowers onto it with foam tape.
I kept the inside of the card simple and just heat embossed a sentiment from the Best Mom Ever stamp set with the white embossing powder and that was it!
