Spellbinders | Good Vibes Only | Watercolor Florals (+ Giveaway)

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.

PROJECTS

ACS_0494

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.

ACS_0499

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!

    I LOVE the look of the dark leaves! I’m way too timid to try non-traditional colors, but must stretch my limits as I really like it. I also love the darker watercolored outline against the watercolored background… absolutely beautiful!
