Water Colored Fancy Bloom Cards
Hello crafty friends, I wish you are having a great day today! On today’s Blog, I’d love to share with you these beautiful water colored floral cards that I created featuring the new Fancy Blooms stamp set & its coordinated dies by Pinkfresh Studios. These cards were so much fun to water coloring as this was my first time using liquid pigment watercolors. So that being said, let’s get started!
To begin with I started by stamping every single image from the stamp set with black ink on a sheet of Strathmore watercolor paper. In the meanwhile I gold heat embossed all the images as I wasn’t sure exactly on what images I was going to use at that point.
So, for the first example. I started by scoring an A2 size white card base and I set it aside, next I grabbed a white card panel a little bit smaller than the card base, and I added a few splatters by using the Licorice pigment. Then I watercolor the floral image by using Sunshine for the buds, a combination between Key Lime and Emerald City for the leaves, last but not least Candy Apple for the flowers. Once I was done water coloring I set it aside to let it dry. In the meantime I die cut with a die cutting machine a cover for the card panel in a piece of white card stock by using the Geo Star stand alone background die and I adhered it with liquid glue to the card panel, as you can see in the picture above. To finish it off, I adhered a few jewels in the center of the flowers. Then I adhered with liquid glue the backed of the floral image to the card panel along with a sentiment that I had white heat embossed in a piece of black card stock from My Favorite Things to Say stamp set, last but not least, I adhered the backed of the card panel to the card base.
For the second example, I scored another white side folding card base and I set it aside, for the card panel I also added a few splatter, but for this I used Aquamarine color, as you can see in the picture above. Next I used another of the floral images that I had stamped. For this floral image I use exactly the same colors as the previous card. Then for the card layering, I started by adhering the backed of the floral image with liquid glue to the card panel along with the sentiment that I had white heat embossed in a piece of black card stock.( If you see closely, you will notice that I ended up adding more leaves underneath the floral image) To finish it off I adhered a few clear confetti sequins. Then I adhered the backed of the card panel to the card base.
For the third example, once again I scored a side folding white card base and I adhered a cover die cutting to it, this time I used the stand alone Folklore die. Also for this card I decide to change the colors on the flowers by using the colors Bubble Gum and Aquamarine, but keeping the same green colors for the leaves just as the previous cards. For the card layering I kept it very simple, I adhered with liquid glue the backed of the floral along with the sentiment to the card. And to finish it off I adhered a few jewels to the center of the flowers.
For the forth and last example I completely changed the whole design by created a long business type birthday card size. For this card I used all the flowers and leaves that I had previously gold heat embossed and water colored with Aquamarine and Key Lime. This card was pretty clean and simple as only cut the white card base at H9.0’’ X W 4.0’’ and I adhered with liquid glue all the flowers and leaves directly on top of the card base, by trying to layer them up on the white space of the card base. As this was a birthday card I gold heat embossed in a piece of white card stock two of the sentiments from My Favorite Things to Say stamp set, and I adhered them on top to the flower arrangement right in the middle of the card. To finish it off I adhered a few gold confetti to the center of the flowers, and some here and there just to add a little bit of contrast with all of the gold embossing on the flowers. Just a note: ( the aqua that you see underneath the card, its actually the envelope that I used. As I was heading over to the post office right after taking this picture)
