Watercolors – CAS Flower card

Tried my hands on watercolors with one of my favorite flower stamps. This stamp is from altenew beautiful day stampset.

To make this card I first stamped the flower n leaves on a water color card stock with versafine onyx black ink. I then colored the images with water colors. After the images dried I die cut the images with coordinating dies and stuck them on my card front. I white heat embossed the sentiment on a black card stock n stuck in place. To finish the card I added the black, blue and violet mats and stuck everything on a card base.

Hope you like this clean n simple water colored flower card.

Autumn Wreath

This card was made in less than 5 mins. The fastest one so far.  Of course , i had all the supplies out on my desk, including the matting card stock and card base ready to go.

First I die cut some watercolor card stock using a rectangle die. Then using a bangle and a pencil i drew a very light circle.

I used the Hero Arts Flower Garden stamp set which has these cute and adorable images of flowers and leaves. I stamped some of those following the pencil circle as a guide and colored in with distress inks and water. To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment with spiced marmalade distress ink and matted the panel using a black and orange card stock.

The most fun thing about making this card was that it one layer, easy to make and fast to execute. I did make 6 more cards with the same design and using different colors.

The colors and theme for the card are inspired by a couple of challenges that i am linking this card to:

I hope you liked my quick card.  Do let me know what you think by leaving me a comment.

PS: Don’t forget to erase the pencil line after the inks have completely dried.

 

Cups of Succulents

I just love succulents in cute pots and cups. They make excellent gifts as well. Today I am also sharing a picture of my indoor garden.

I loved coloring the images with copics. I wanted to pop up the images for some dimension so fussy cut right next to the stamped line. I used an exato knife to cut between the leaves. With all those marks made by my hands I am playing along with Alphabet Challenge -M for Make Your Mark
