Howdy! Here I am with some die cut flowers to lighten up the cold, rainy and in some places snowy winter days.
I started out by putting down some watercolors on watercolor paper using a little set my husband gave me for Christmas. Some of the colors have a pearly shimmer but it is hard to see in the photo. Next I stamped several of the flowers and leaves from the Flowers for Coloring stamp set over the watercolor areas using Versamark ink & Hero Arts white embossing powder. I used the matching Flowers for Coloring die set to cut them out.
I then dry embossed a panel using a Sizzix embossing folder. That was glued to the card base.
The sentiment was stamped with Versamark & heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I die cut this out using the matching dies.
I layered up the flowers and leaves and glued them down along with the sentiment.
There’s still time to create a card for the January challenge Anything Goes. Another idea for these flowers, would be to stamp over patterned paper and die cut or hand cut them out.
