Hello and good morning! Can you tell that I'm a little addicted to my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush pens lately? After playing with them for a couple days now, I think I'm more comfortable layering and mixing different colors. So here is my watercolored floral background card.
I was inspired by STAMPloration's sketch.
I absolutely love the bold word dies from Winnie & Walter. For today's card I die cut the "love" one from white cardstock and silver glitter cardstock. Then I covered the entire silver die cut with my C7 Copic marker so that it has a gunmetal look. The glitter die cut serves more like shadow and I think it really helps the white die cut pop against the busy background. I foam mounted the word die as well.
Since the floral background was watercolored in gray and the glitter die cut has a similar hue, I decided to add some vellum. Instead of just adhering a plain strip of vellum behind the word dies, I adhered three strips with torn edges. I also mounted the vellum layers with clear Kool Tak foam so they look more dimensional. Then I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from W&W's So Tweet set and embellished the card with a few sequins and rhinestones. The coloring process was really therapeutic and I had a lot of fun creating this card. I hope you've enjoyed looking at it, too. Have a wonderful day!
