First and foremost, how beautiful is this stamp set eh? Gorgeous!!
First, my brightly coloured one layer card. In addition to the main bouquet image, I used the larger single flower, bunch of three small flowers and a few leaves to make my border.
I watercoloured the images using distress stains and Gansai Tambi watercolours. My background looked too plain in comparison to the border therefore I added a bit of green watercolour around it.
Also, I didnt worry much about shadows or highlights, I just wet the area and dropped in some colour.
Next up is the card that features only the main image (bouquet).
Rather than using a different colour palette for my cards, I chose to use the same colours. I stamped my main image on to a watercolour cardstock and heat embossed it using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder.
Again, I wet one area and started dropping in colour exactly like the first card. As a result, this was the fastest card to come together.
As shown above, I added a bit of grey outside the lines on my bouquet. Therefore, you can see a bit of faux dimension to my one layer stamped image. In the end, I placed the word “Love” from Script Words Die Set over my image.
Likewise, I used the same colour palette for my last card. In my opinion, you can make your own bouquet using the Blooming Bouquet Stamp Set since it has quite a few single stamps that will help you with the same. With this in mind, I fussy cut the images after watercolouring and arranged them in my own floral spray.
I also added a bit of light grey colour wash behind my floral spray.
The word “Love You” is from Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set.
Whenever I am short on time, I use this technique of wetting an area and dropping colour. For this reason, my cards came together rather quickly.
That’s all for today. I hope you liked the cards. Thank you for stopping by.
