Watercolored Spring Bouquet
I've made a couple of mini slimline cards with the Simon Says Stamp Spring Bouquets and wanted to see what they would look like in a regular A2 card size. This time I decided to watercolor the image.
I stamped the image with VersaMark Ink onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock and heat embossed it clear. It was then colored with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. When the watercoloring was dry the image with cut using the coordinating die and sticky back foam was added to the back to add dimension.
I wanted to do something different for the back ground and pulled out a light woodgrain cardstock and cut it using a Lawn Fawn Stackable Stitched Rectangle that would cover the entire front of an A2 cardbase. To closely match the woodgrain paper the cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs Whisper Cardstock and the woodgrain panel was adhered with dotliner adhesive.
For the large flower bouquet to fit on the card front is was adhered on a slight angle with liquid glue, leaving an open space in the lower left for a sentiment. The sentiment was cut from Gina K. Designs Dark Chocolate Cardstock and from sticky back foam. The edges of the foam was colored with a dark brown Copic marker and then adhered in place with liquid glue. A few multi-colored sequins matching the colors of the flowers were scattered around the image and the card was done.
