Take 2 with Therese: Card Ideas Using Gradient Cardstock and Metallic Watercolors

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it’s Therese and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese.

Today, I am sharing two card ideas using Altenew’s Gradient Cardstock Sets and Metallic Watercolors.

I added some wide watercolor stripes to both of my backgrounds. On the first card, I used one of the Sea Shore Cardstock and the Enchanted Gold Metallic Watercolor.

Then I added a beautiful Grateful Heart flower colored with the Watercolor Brush Markers.

And I also added a black Fancy Hello die-cut sentiment.

My second card uses the Shades of Purple Gradient Cardstock with Sterling Silver Metallic Watercolor stripes.

But this time I added a Poppy Garden image onto it.

And then I added a sentiment heat-embossed in Antique Silver from the Wavy Roses Stamp Set.

I really like that blue green color with the gold and then that fancy Hello on top of the flower… and the 3D aspects of the card. Quite stunning.
