I did some water coloring with this amazing new Vintage Flowers stamp set combined with the Vintage Label Sentiments to make this purple beauty Mother's Day card. I had so much fun creating this and it was super easy thanks to my Zig Clean Color markers.
I colored up one of the Vintage Flowers and colored it with my Zig Clean Color Markers again, this time in peachy orange colors. I added some Wink of Stella and glued on some clear sea beads for extra dimension. I also colored up some stems and added those behind my flower. You can really see the details in this picture.
I used a piece of the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper. I stamped all the flowers and then picked two tones of purple, one lighter and one darker and two olive tones of the markers and water colored with my aqua brush. I added the color around the images and carried it into the white spaces to give a color wash to the background too. After my panel dried, I used the largest Silly Stitch rectangle to added some detail to the edges. I stamped the Vintage Label Sentiments, customized my sentiment and then cut it out with the coordinating Vintage Label die. I popped it up with some foam dimensions.
I didn't want to put those Vintage Flowers away yet, so I made another card combining more of the new LID products. I first cut a smooth white A2 card stock panel with the largest Fringed Scalloped Rectangles. TIP: to fluff up those scallops, I like to slide the side of my bone folder under the row of scallops and lift up gently. I can then fluff up all those scallops on each side all at one time.
I then layered on the smaller panel of the awesome new Tribal Chic papers cut with the Silly Stitched Rectangle die.
The sentiment was stamped from Vintage Label Sentiments in grey ink. You can see the cool dimension the Fringed Scalloped Rectangles adds to my card front. So pretty!
Here is a closer look at the new products I used today.
