Thank You Cards

Thank You | Waffle Flower February Release

Hi there, I hope you’re having a great weekend!

I have another card today using the new Potted Lily stamp set from the Waffle Flower Crafts February release.  This time, I went for a bit of no-line watercolor which, I’ll be honest, makes me a little nervous.  But, the more I practice this technique, the better I feel about it 🙂

I started off by stamping the floral image three times onto Fabriano Artistico Extra White Cold Press watercolor paper.  I used Gina K. Warm Glow Amalgam ink which is just dark  enough for me to see (oh, my aging eyes!) but light enough to give the feel of no-line watercoloring.  Using a waterbrush pen and Karin Brushmarker Pro markers, I colored the images by applying a little bit of marker directly to the image, and drawing the pigment out using the waterbrush pen.  The color I used were Fire Red (for the petals), Burgundy (for the deep shadows), Gold (for the stamen), and Lush Green and Grass for the petals.  When the flowers were dry, I added a bit of detail using Polychromos color pencils and then used the coordinating dies to cut out the images.

For the background, I used one of the plaid stamps from the new Simply Plaids stamp set.  I stamped the pattern in Altenew Morning Mist ink onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White.

To finish the card, I adhered the flowers with foam tape and then stamped the sentiment (from the Potted Lily set) in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.  Then I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for coming by!
