Today’s lineup of talented team members and guests are:
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.
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!
