Altenew | Watercolor Painted Flowers

Hello friends! I’ve been wanting to grab some of my color layering stamps (those that have matching layers you use to “color” the outlines with), skip the whole color layering thing and just simply watercolor them. A few days ago I finally have – I used the Painted Flowers stamps and dies along with Daniel Smith Watercolor Sampler sheet.

To make my watercolor easier I heat embossed flower and leaf outlines in black (I used VersaFine Onyx Black Ink and Clear Embossing Powder) onto Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper. The heat embossed edge acted as a barrier and prevented my watercolor from going outside the lines.

I used only two colors, teal and green, and by adding various amounts of water and pigment created lighter and darker areas on my painted flowers and leaves. By using watercolor I was also able to add color to the little leaf and flower bud, this image doesn’t have a matching layer in the stamp set so it is always left blank.

I used matching dies to cut these out, combined with a beautiful frame and created a simple card front. I also stamped several flowers and leaves onto my tan card base to add movement to this card.

The sentiment, Thank You, came from the Many Thanks stamp set and was heat embossed in WOW Detail White embossing powder onto black cardstock. The continuation of the sentiment “For your kindness” was stamped in black under the foam mounted frame.

I also added several gold sequins to dress up this card juts a bit.
