Watercolor Florals...

Hi! A quick card today with some stamping and water coloring.


I started with a piece of watercolor paper and a stamp set by Studio G which I had picked up from Itsy Bitsy a long time ago. I stamped the flower trio with Versamark Black ink pad. I used a few Ranger distress inks to color the flowers. After the panel was completely dry, I went over the outlines with a black glitter pen. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set and embossed on vellum with white EP. I simply layered it with stripes of grey and black card stock for more emphasis.

Entering this card in the following challenges:

Less is More Colour Week - Citrus
I have used Twisted Citron for the little leaves.

Freshly Made Sketches #226


CAS Mix Up March Challenge


I have used stamping, water coloring with distress inks and heat embossing for the sentiment.

NBUS Challenge #6: Any thing Goes

The Studio G stamp set that I used was bought more than a year ago, since it was on sale. First time I used it.

Love,
Nandini

  15. This is a beautiful card for springtime, Nandini! You did such a professional job of watercoloring your flowers and I think outlining them with the black glitter pen was genius!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #6! I apologize for being so late in coming by to thank you! Enjoy your day!! Hugs, Darnell
