For my project today, I used our beautiful Smiling Cosmos set. This is our new 4×6 floral cluster stamp. The actual stamp is large! It almost covers an entire 4×6 panel.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by heat embossing the floral image onto watercolor paper with our Rose Gold Embossing Powder. Then I did some loose watercoloring with Ken Oliver Color Bursts. For my cosmos petals, I added three different colors: Cerulean Blue, Indigo and Orchid. I love the three toned look to the petals once the paint finally dried.

Once the petals were painted, I painted the leaves with Olive Green color bursts. There are other smaller foliage and sprig elements in the cluster which I painted with Turquoise color bursts. The painting process went very quickly for this card since the design is more stylized.

Once my panel was dried, I die cut the watercolor panel into a stitched A2 panel using the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangles Large Die Collection. I stamped (Caviar Hybrid Ink) my sentiment from the same set, trimmed it out and then popped it up onto my panel. Next, I mounted the painted panel onto a top folding A2 base and added some Gold Medallion sequins to embellish my card.

That’s all from me today! Your next stop on this hop is our super talented DT member Tae Eun!

    The rose gold with those blue and purple hues are so stunning! I never thought to use sequins to embellish a card either, I’ll have to keep that in mind for the future!

    A very beautiful card made with a stunning stamp…I love your color choices, but I need to ask you, where to find the palette for these Ken Oliver water color burst… and when u dip into these powders is your brunch then wet?

    This is a beautiful card. I love that it can be done with just one large cluster stamp. I love the use of embossing as that really helps make using watercolors easier. I hope to get this stamp in my stash.
