Even though we’ve had an unseasonably warm week, I’ve put all my flowers to bed for the winter, trimming down all my perennials and neatening things up a little. So since I have no garden flowers to show you, I thought I’d do some summery watercoloured paper roses for you with a couple of designs.
Months ago I purchased this lovely set from WPlus9 called Freehand Florals, and it sat for all these months waiting for some stamping. Finally I took some time to stamp them out! I love how even with a layering set like this you can get some really nice watercolor effects. So, as I stamped each layer of the flowers on watercolour paper, I took my waterbrush and blended out the stamping, which really gives it a soft impressionistic look. A little blue splattery ink helps with that dreamy look.
Around the image I used an MFT die as a frame and sparkled it up with VersaMark ink and Iridescent Embossing Powder.
An embossed vellum sentiment, some glittery ScorTape, and some sequins finish this one off. I like the softness.....but now how about something bold?
I used the same set with some deep reds, purples and eggplant colours to get a much more vibrant look. Again, this one is stamped on watercolor paper and I used the waterbrush in between stamping the different layers of the flowers and leaves. The sentiment was cut out on my Silhouette Cameo machine with a couple of layers so it pops up a bit.
Again I used vellum for the sentiment so that the colour of the flowers still shows through underneath. No sense doing all that pretty work for the stamping and then covering it up!
Inside I used a die cut leaf and blossom from the set too...sentiments are from a Power Poppy set, Party Time.
That's it for me today....I’ll be back tomorrow with some Power Poppy fun! Thanks for stopping by.
