Petal Potpourri + Giveaway!
It’s kinda rare that I stamp using flowers but I love to watercolor and flowers seem to be the best.
The Petal Potpourri stamp set is mostly a stamp and punch type of set but there is one flower image that is fun to watercolor.
Make sure to check out the giveaway at the bottom of this post.
One of the things I’m noticing in my studio is the abundance of pattern paper sitting. Not moving. Nada. Dust bunny collectors.
I decided to dive in. It needs to be used. You could be seeing lots of patterns being used soon. Of course you probably could have guessed what I pulled out first- Typeset Designer Paper. I do adore this stuff.
To create these flowers it’s SUPER simple and again fits my laziness.
Just stamp your flowers onto the Designer Paper using Black Craft Ink. Emboss them using Clear Embossing Powder. Before you punch you want to watercolor.
I simply used my Aqua Painter and did a quick brush with three different colors. Kinda like I did with the card I shared yesterday. If the color was too light I went back over it a little. Because the paper is thin, I went ahead and heat set with my heat tool.
When you apply the ink and it’s pretty wet the paper feels really texturized once you heat set. I love it.
The last thing to add to the card is a few embellishments. Love that the buttons perfectly coordinate. P E R F E C T I O N!
Okay… I have a fun prize sitting in my studio that needs a good home. Wanna play?
