Hello, friends! Thank you for stopping by today. I was a guest on the Spellbinders Blog last week, and now I’ll be sharing the details on my blog this week for those who missed it. This post is part of a series featuring the Good Vibes Only Collection by Stephanie Low! You can find my first posts here and here.
For my first card, I used Rosy Summer Flowers Dies. I die-cut the both dies from watercolor paper and then watercolored them loosely with my Daniel Smith Ultra Fine Watercolors. I wanted to use a non-traditional color for the leaves so I used a dark blue shade.
For the background, I did a light wash of gray watercolor on watercolor cardstock and once it dried, I stamped the sentiment in a dark blue ink. I glued the piece to my white card base and then mounted the floral images on top.
For my second card, I used my Mijello Mission Gold watercolors with the Lovely Lilac Dies.
I die-cut both dies from watercolor cardstock and watercolored them, but I added some smaller details with a fine watercolor brush. For the card base, I decided to add a partial piece of black cardstock and added in lines with a black pen. I stamped the sentiment in the center and then mounted the floral pieces in the bottom corner.
Both cards have a clean and simple look. These floral die-cuts are very versatile, and I showed some basic ways you can color and design the cards. I hope you were inspired to try your own watercoloring! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Spellbinders was generous enough to give me three extra dies from the Good Vibes Only Collection. All you have to do is leave comments on my Spellbinders posts this week, and I’ll select a random winner to receive them!
