Hello and welcome back to Day 2 of our Collaboration Hop with the fabulous So Suzy Stamps! If you’re joining us for the first time today, be sure to check out Day 1 because that is where most of the action is and where you can leave comments to win our collab giveaways. We are still celebrating the hop today (Day2) and tomorrow (Day 3) and you can find some of the hop participants from yesterday posting throughout this week to celebrate!
I started off by coloring Suzy’s Peony stamp with three shades of pink Zig markers (No. 200 S. Almond Pink, 202 Pink Peach and 27 Dark Pink). Then I spritzed a little bit of water onto the stamp and stamped right onto my watercolor panel. I did this a few times to cover the edges of my panel with beautiful pink watercolor peonies. Next I added some smaller watercolor florals using the larger semi solid rose stamp from our Scripty Greetings set. I colored this stamp with the 202 Pink Peach and 27 Dark Pink. I spritzed onto the stamp twice and stamped around the larger peonies to make the floral arrangements fuller. The two sizes of the Peony and the Rose complement each other very nicely!
I applied the same technique to the leaves: I colored the leaves with a green zig marker, spritzed water and stamped along the florals. Once the “watercoloring” was finished, I stamped the sentiment onto the panel with our Noir Dye ink using my Mini MISTI. Then I trimmed the watercolor panel about an eighth of an inch at the top and bottom edges.
Next I stamped our Minor Stripes onto a separate card panel with our Crystal Pewter dye ink. I trimmed two strips and applied those striped strips onto the top and bottom edges of a top folding A2 card base. I also adhered two strips of Silver Holographic Adhesive Paper below the gray stripes to add a bit of sparkle and interest to my card. After I adhered the watercolor panel onto the base, I glued on some new Silver Holographic sequins onto my card.
