Simon Says Stamp | Beautiful Bouquet Birthday Cards

Simon Says Stamp | Beautiful Bouquet Birthday Cards

The floral cluster in the Beautiful Bouquet set is huge. When you see an image online it is hard to put it in perspective and correctly understand its size. So you might be thinking this is a nice floral cluster for A2 cards, but in reality, this image is much bigger. The cards I’m sharing are slimline, 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.

CARD DETAILS

This is probably one of my favorite images to watercolor – it is quite large thus allowing plenty of room to play with color. I heat embossed the image in Antique Gold embossing powder on Arches Cold Pressed watercolor paper. The heat embossing creates a raised edge making watercolor easier as it forms a barrier between sections of the image preventing the color from flowing to other areas.

I used my Daniel Smith watercolors (still my favorite) and a medium water brush to color this image. Once my coloring was done I cut the panel in half to use on 2 cards. This gave me 2 beautiful watercolor panels for my projects. I stamped a Birthday sentiment on both using Hibiscus Blooms stamp set and Versafine Onyx Black ink.

I also did some die cutting for these – I cut panels from white cardstock using Spellbinder Fluted Classics Slimline dies, they added a beautiful simple border to these cards.

Lastly, I embellished the cards with pink gems and clear drops. Have fun stamping!
