Artistry Blooms Cards Part 3

Jul 27, 2020 | Cards

We are half way through my Artistry Blooms Cards mini series. This card features watercoloring and stamping on the large die cut piece. You can see the other cards in this series here.

Watercoloring Die Cut Card

To make the card base, cut a 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ piece of thick Whisper White cardstock. Score and fold this piece at 4-1/4″ on the long side. Add a 5-1/2″ x 3″ piece of Rainbow Glimmer Paper down the center of the card front using Dimensionals.

Using a sheet of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, die cut out the large floral banner from the Banner Blooms Dies set. Watercolor the flowers, stems, and leaves using the same colors as the previous post (Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, and Gorgeous Grape) .

Make your own “paint palette” by pressing the corner of the ink pad on a large clear block and pick up the ink with the medium tip Water Painter. The photo below shows how I put the ink on the block and used it to watercolor. The amount of ink you pick up and the amount of water you squeeze out will determine the intensity of the color you put down on the paper.

Once dry, stamp the sentiment over the banner portion of the die cut piece using the Magenta Madness ink pad. Adhere the piece to the card front by sponging Multipurpose Liquid Glue on the back and pressing it onto the glimmer paper.

All the colors from the watercoloring and the glimmer paper come together nicely. How would you use the glimmer paper?
