I started off by stamping our Morning Glory Border stamp on watercolor paper (Strathmore 300 Series Cold Press) with our Noir Dye Ink. It’s an intense black ink and is waterproof when it dries! I started watercoloring the florals and foliage with Schmincke and Winsor & Newton watercolor paints. For the flowers, I blended a red and yellowish paint. For the leaves, I stuck to one green watercolor paint. Generally, I like using different shades of one color to add more depth to my painting but I chose to keep the leaves simple on this card.
After the panel was dry, I die cut it using the largest die in our Double Stitched Rectangle dies to add stitching to the edges. The largest dies cut the panel into an A2 (4.25in x 5.5in) panel. Then I heat embossed the large hugs sentiment over the painted panel and then completed the sentiment by stamping the “sending big” in our Noir dye ink. I embellished the card by adding our Dew Drops (7mm and 5mm) around the sentiment.
