For You

I am finally back from a long break. Here I am sharing a card made with a new stamp set from Paper Smooches. This is an older stamp set from them called Blossoming Bud, but I just got it and I can't wait to start making cards with the pretty flowers from the set!

A close up.

I first masked a section on the card base and stamped the flowers, then I used pearlescent watercolor paints to color the flowers and leaves. I also added lots of dots to fill in the entire defined area. The sentiment was also from the same stamp set. I used silver embossing power and heat embossed the sentiment to match the pearlescent colors. The color of the card base was actually dark grey, but it looked like black from the photos. I guess I am needing a major improvement on my photography skills.

I am playing along the following challenges. Thanks for visiting!

  1. that is a very cool flower border on black as well! Thank you for playing with us at AAA cards

  2. The flowers really are so pretty and I love your colours. I can imagine how extra gorgeous it looks in real life on the dark grey - photos can be such a pain with colours! Thanks for playing at AAA Cards.

  3. Love how you masked your section of flowers. So pretty on the dark colored card base. Thank you for sharing with us at AAA Cards.

  5. Beautiful card and so beautifully coloured. I imagine it is quite shimmery IRL with the pearlescent watercolor paints. Thank you for joining us at Less is More in collaboration with AAA Cards.
