Hi everyone! Erum here with a pretty card to share featuring the Ruffled Flowers Stamp Set and the new Metallic Watercolor Pan Set by Altenew.
I started by stamping the image from the Ruffled Flowers Stamp Set twice on regular cardstock twice in Obsidian Pigment Ink. I used a graphite pencil to apply some shading closer to the flower center and then blended it out with a blending stump. Next, to add a bit more depth, I used a black Prismacolor pencil, keeping a light hand and blended this with a blending stump too.
Once the images were shaded, I used the coordinating dies to die cut them and then I set them aside.
Next, I used blue and a mint green shade (Aquamarine and Topaz) from the Metallic Watercolor Pan Set to make my background. I applied the darker of the blues to the middle and then the lighter one at the top and bottom. After this, I blended the colors well together so they transitioned into each other beautifully to create an ombre background.
To make the background darker, I heat set the first layer of color wash and then added a second layer too. You can do this as many times as you want to, I did this only twice and that was enough.
Once the panel was dry, I added black paint splatters from the 36 Pan Watercolor Set. Next, I arranged the die-cut flowers by adhering them with foam tape. I placed a strip of cardstock over the two images and to finish off the card, I adhered the die-cut from Simply Hello Die on it.
You can watch the process video below to see how the card came along or you can head over to the Altenew YouTube channel and watch it in HD.
