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!
