Framed ‘Watercolour’ Florals
Welcome to the day after release and I am back with a couple more cards I finished last night using Framed Florals. If you missed the release blog hop yesterday, you can catch up HERE. There is still time to comment along the hop to be in the chance of winning the ENTIRE release!
Anyway, here is my first card…
I recently treated myself to the Altenew Watercolours 🙂 and thought I would give them a little whirl. I picked a couple of my favourites, Mountain Mist & Lagoon to create this simple background. I then simply used my MISTI tool to stamp the Framed Florals image over the top using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I trimmed the image and adhered it to a panel of white card for a small border and then onto a Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay card base.
I was feeling a little braver next and decided to some proper watercoloring and create a softer looking card…
I am pleased with how I coloured the flowers, but still need lots of practice when it comes to the background. I seem to have lost some of the patience I once had and so I find it hard to wait for layers to dry before adding more!
To make things easier I heart embossed the image in white before colouring. The finished panel is adhered onto some Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue card and then onto a white card case. The sentiment is from Simply Said and stamped in Altenew Silver Stone ink.
I hope I have inspired you to get out your watercolours! I will definitely be getting mine out again and practicing more 🙂 I will be back again tomorrow with more to share using the new release products.
Until then, thank you for stopping by.
