Riotous Wildflowers Thinking of You

I went to my completed card to find a thinking of you to send to someone I felt needed a little pick me up and only had one on had, so I decided to make some more. All-in-all I made seven different cards. They were all gold embossed onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth and watercolored with various mediums.


I really like this background stamp, it has such pretty roses. I wanted to color some of them red and often when watercoloring you get pink when water is added to a red pigment. I have found that I can get a true red when using Karin Brushmarkers. I like the combination of red and yellow, with a little blue accents on the small flowers.


Once the watercolor was the panel was cut down using a stitched rectangle and adhered to a black cardstock mat, which I think really makes the colors pop. Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape was added to the back and it was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase.


The sentiment was stamp on a scrap of black cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed. It was cut down using a Honey Bee Sentiment Banner and adhered with the same foam tape.
