For today’s card I used the Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set from Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember release.
I started out by stamping the large floral stamp from the set onto a piece of Canson watercolor paper using Antique Linen Distress Ink. I chose this ink because I am going to be doing some no-line watercolor.
I am decided to use Arteza Real Brush Pens to do the watercoloring. I scribbled the colors that I used onto a palette and picked up the color with a paintbrush to paint with. Check out the video to see the coloring in detail!
I used my Tonic trimmer to cut the watercolor piece to 8.75 x 3.5. I made a 9.25 x 4 card base out of Neenah Desert Storm card stock. I made the card this size so that it would fit the large stamp on it and still fit in a standard business envelope. I popped the watercolor piece onto the card base with foam tape.
For the sentiment I took the stamp which says “Thanks” from the same stamp set. I stamped it onto some Gina K Slate card stock with Versamark ink using my MISTI tool. I then heat embossed it with a white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment down to a strip and popped it up on my card. To finish up the card I added some clear sequins with my Gina K connect glue.
