Create with Watercolor Stamped Images

Hello friends! 

The weather is slightly warmer in the last two days. I am continuing to be in the mood in creating floral cards. I truly hope that you are not tired of my Altenew creations.

This stamp set I Adore You is super popular and you can see why, right?

 What can I say? I fell in love with this stamp set the moment I laid eyes on it. Whether you love coloring or embossing, this is a must-have!

 Today's card is about adding a touch of watercolor (Altenew Inks) and shine (Gansai Tambi Starry Colors).
thinking of you

I took out my MISTI and put the entire set on and stamped the embossed the entire floral and leaf images in  Evening Grey. Keeping the images in place in MISTI,  I clear-embossed the entire images again. This way, you are left with very subtle grey outlines for your watercoloring.

Now you wonder how I colored the images with Altenew Inks? I simply swiped the ink pad onto acrylic block and used my Waterbrush Pen to color. That's it. These inks are water-soluble and is perfect for watercoloring!

thinking of you

To keep the theme light and grey, I also added a strip of foil paper (see bottom right). I did fussy cut all the images and it was a simple task to do. The (Adore You) matching dies will be awesome to use here.

Thank you for stopping by!

How can anyone tire of flower cards-especially your creations? This card is stunning. Not sure if it's the gray card stock, the flower colors--doesn't matter. Your card is lovely.

That grey is the best choice for these stamped images...just enough of an outline to provide the details but letting the colors be the star of the blooms. Truly gorgeous card.

LOVE THIS, Virginia! I'm enjoying all the different looks you create. It (unfortunately for me) results in a very busy credit card and lots of packages being delivered to me!
