Floral card : Smile

Hiya Crafty peeps,

Yet another floral card on this Valentine season. This time I have used my brand new Altenew's Forever in Love stampset and watercolored it with Gansai Tambi watercolors.

  • Stamped the florals using Antique linen to achieve a noline watercoloring look on Arches cold pressed watercolor paper.
  • Watercolored using Gansai Bambi watercolors.
  • Added pencil detailings with Prisma colored pencils.
  • Spalshed watered white paint generously over the florals.
  • Fussy cut them an kept aside.
  • Took the focal panel slightly smaller than A2 sized card and stenciled stripes using Altenew's classy stripes stencil and Limestone dye ink slightly and in a faded fashion.
  • Then stamped sentiment from the same stampset using Memento Tuxedo ink.
  • Then generously splashed the black paint to the focal panel.
  • Matted this to the A2 sized top fold card base.
  • Then topped the fussy cut florals onto the card and the card is ready.
Hope you like it!

Floral card : You Complete Me

Hi Hello Crafty peeps!

Happy Valentine's Day to all my blog visitors and crafty friends.

Whipped up a quick floral card using my favorite Noline coloring using Danielsmith watercolors Dotcard on Arches Cold pressed watercolor paper. First ever try using these combos and highly convinced by  the way the colors move.

Over to pics,

  • Stamped Altenew's Dahlia blossom using Antique linen DI on Arches cold pressed watercolor paper.
  • Used Daniel smith watercolors of SSS Debby hughes  color palette for greens and Sharri carols palette for yellows and a tinge of orange for the shadows.
  • Took Strathmore Tan paper is used for the stenciled base using Altenew class stripes stencil and Prima Modeling paste.
  • Stenciled base is matted onto a white top fold cardbase.
  • Fussy cut florals are added on the stenciled base with different dimensions for interest and yellow enamel dots as finishing touch.
Hope you like it!

Colors are inspired from current Altenew's monthly challenge
