Hello, It’s a Special Day

Geplaatst in: cardmaking 0

Happy Thursday!! Sorry for my absence earlier this week. I’ve been busy. But I thought I’d pop in today to share this card I made a few months ago – yeah, I know, it took me that long to share.

You may have seen bits and pieces of it around my social media – this is one of the cards included in a workshop. But I thought it was time to share the whole thing today.

On a cardfront of watercolor paper I first stamped (and masked) a couples of the Peony Scrolls from Altenew, and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. And then of course I went on to coloring each of the petals – watercoloring with my distress markers, first with a yellow color closer to the heart of the flower, and with pinks on the outer edges.

By adding both colors immediately one after the other without drying in between, the colors could bleed into each other. In between the florals and in a smaller amount above them I added a light touch of pink to the background. The ‘hello’ die is from Mama Elephant.

I worked on a couple other colors too – all kinds of different combos and shadings are possible.

Thanks for stopping by!
