Delicate Watercolor Floral Greeting Cards
Hi there, welcome to another blog post! Today I’ll be sharing with you these two simple floral cards that I made to play along with the #122 Simon Says Stamp Flicker Challenge featuring the new Delicate Flowers stamp set. So, without further ado let’s jump into the blog!
For the first example I started by stamping with black ink three different flowers from the Delicate Flowers stamp set in a piece of Bristol card sock. Next, I colored them in with a combination of reds from my Arteza brush pen set. Then, after I was done layering the colors I used a watercolor brush with a little bit of water to dissolve the colors making them to infuse in each other.
Once, the water coloring was done I put it aside to let it dry. In the meanwhile I use the help of my stamping tool to stamped the clustered leaves twice. I used the stamping tool, because I was planning to stamp the leaves in the same position my rotating the paper. As soon as I was done water coloring the leaves I added black splatters to give an extra something to the card panel.
By the time I was done with the splatters, all of the flowers were dried out. So, I fussy cut them out of the paper with my scissors. Right after that I created I cluster with the flowers by adhering them on top of the stamped leaves, two of them were adhered with liquid glue and the one in the middle was adhered with foam mounting tape just for a little bit of dimension. Right afterwards, I trimmed the edges of the white card panel down leaving a frame in between the card base and the panel, and right before I adhered the backed of it to an A2 standard size Kraft panel I decided to wrapped around a piece of twine in kraft color which I finished with a tying bow.
To finish the card off I stamped a sentiment with black ink in a piece of white card stock, and I adhered it to the card with foam mounting tape on one of the side of the card.
For the second card I stamped with black ink another flowers from the same stamp set in a piece of Bristol card stock, then I used the same color combination that I used on the previous example to color it. However, I kept the colors a little bit more concentrated by not adding much water to the watercolor brush. Once, I was done with the water coloring I set the flower aside while I stamped and water color the leaves cluster in another piece of Bristol card stock.
Soon after I was done water coloring the leaves I used a stitched card panel die to cut the panel out of the piece of card stock. Then, I fussy cut the flower, and I adhered on top of the leaves with foam mounting tape to give it a little bit of dimension. To finish the card off, I stamped a sentiment on the lower side on the card panel with black ink, and I adhered the card panel to the card base.
As, a finishing touch added glossy accent to anthers of the flowers, by the way I used a combination of yellow tones to color the center of the clustered flowers. Also, I added shimmer to the flowers by using the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen, and to add a little bit more of sparkle I adhered here and there crystal clear sequins to one of the cards.
