CARD DETAILS

I started working on my card by stamping 2 clouds and a sentiment from the Fly A Kite stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black Ink onto Distress Watercolor Paper. Next, I stamped 3 kites and kite strings as well as a number of tiny florals and leaves from the Bold Blooms stamp set.

I’ve been slowly growing my Daniel Smith watercolor collection and I was anxious to play with new colors so I used them to color this card. I went with Cobalt Teal Blue to watercolor the sky as well as one of the kits and some flowers. I also used Quinacridone Rose and Magenta colors to color the two other kites and the rest of the flowers and finally Sap Green to color the leaves.

I did my coloring a several layers – after I had applied the first, light, wash of color I waited for it to dry and intensified the areas I wanted to appear darker. After my coloring was done I used coordinating dies and cut these images out in my Platinum 6 die cutting machine.

I used a lot of foam adhesive and also a bit of glue to adhere my die cuts onto the card. I foam mounted the kits and flowers and used glue to adhere the leaves.

To add a bit of sparkle and shine I used sequins from the Mermaid Sequin Mix and adhered them onto my card. Lastly, I coated several flowers with Nuvo Crystal Glaze to make them dimensional and shiny.
