I am back with another colorful card to share with you along with a how-to video.
Today, I will be using the Bamboo Rose Stamp Set on my card. I also used some liquid watercolors to color the images.
To begin, I stamped several images from the Bamboo Rose Stamp Set onto watercolor paper with Altenew’s Embossing Ink. Next, I used the Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder for heat embossing.
After this, I watercolored the images. To do this, I first applied water to the stamped area and then dropped in some color. I waited for the watercolor to dry a little before adding more pigment to the area. While I was coloring, I wasn’t really concerned about shadows or highlights but I did add more pigment along the inner edge of the petals for depth.
I repeated the same technique with the leaves and the butterfly. This time, I applied a wash of lighter colored paint first and then went back in with a darker hue.
After I was done coloring the stamped images, I fussy cut everything and put it aside.
For my card front, I will be using Woodgrain White Paper. Please note that you can opt for watercolor paper instead since we will be watercoloring. To this, I will add some watercolor that will act as a base for my floral vine.
As soon as the panel was dry, I adhered the stamped images.
Next, I added black splatters because I felt my card lacked something. Even after doing so, I thought there was something missing. So, I stamped a few circular shapes from the Bamboo Rose Stamp Set and colored them yellow. I popped these up along the vine.
The sentiment that I used is from Sketchy Floral Stamp Set. I heat embossed this with the Rose Gold Embossing Powder as well. I also adhered a piece of Glitter Tape along one edge of the tab.
In the end, I added gold confetti for sparkle.
