Good morning! Thanks for joining me for The Ton Spring 2016 Release! For Day 2 Release festivities, we are introducing the following new products: Sending Peonies, Happiest of Peonies, Loose Peonies, Vogue Alpha Upper, and Vogue Alpha Lower. All products will be available for purchase on Thursday, April 7 at 7 am EST. 🙂
I created two watercolor cards with different looks for you. For the first one, I stamped the peony cluster with VersaMark on watercolor paper and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I like using clear so that the outlines are not as defined as they are with white embossing powder. I watercolored with my Mission Gold watercolors and fussy cut after it was dry.
On my white card base, I stamped the same image using Crystal Pewter Couture Color.
I glued the watercolor image with foam tape and stamped the sentiment with Light Onyx. I finished it off with clear sequins
For my second card, I stamped the peonies and leaves in Aspen Cocoa Couture Color and loosely watercolored with the same watercolors. I fussy cut them and set them aside.
For my background, I watercolored in gray on watercolor paper and die-cut using my favorite scallop frame die. The sentiment was stamped with Noir ink using my MISTI. I added splatters of black and gray to the background. I added foam tape to the scallop outline so that it could pop out and I rearranged the florals and leaves over it on the bottom. I finished it off with glossy black sequins.
Hope you liked my cards 🙂
