Erum here today with a very vibrant, bold color for the August 2018 Inspiration Challenge.
I have followed the same watercoloring technique on the new card as I did on the previous one. I did this because I didn’t make a video earlier and I thought it would be helpful for you if I had a visual explanation as well.
I used Antique Gold Heat Embossing Powder to heat emboss my images. After this, I applied water to one petal at a time, added a bit of violet-blue color. While the petal was still wet, I spread this color around a bit and then I added another shade of blue. The two-toned petals look really interesting. The Magnolias For Her Stamp Set has gorgeous, wide enough petals to show off the two tones of colors.
I colored the remaining elements using the same wet-on-wet watercoloring technique. After all the images were dry, I die cut these out with the coordinating dies using the Mini-Blossom Die Cutting Machine.
Next, I worked on my background to which I applied a lot of water and dropped in different shades of green. I kept drying the layers and adding more layers of watercolor and splatters as the previous layer dried. I continued to do this until I was happy with the look.
After the panel was dry, I added some black paint splatters and started arranging my bouquet. I popped the flowers on different levels but glued the flower bunches and leaves directly onto the card.
