I started by cutting a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 4 ¼ x 5 ½. Using a black pigment ink, I stamp the large flower group from the stamp set Live Life in Full Bloom on the bottom of the cardstock.
Using black pigment ink again, I stamped the beautiful sentiment from the Love and Courage stamp set above the already stamped flower group.
Masks were then created for both the sentiment and the flower group. (A mask is a stamped image onto a piece of masking paper, or something with a sticky side) The masks were the fussy cut and applied over the originally stamped images.
The flower group was then stamped multiple times moving up towards the top of the card panel. The flower mask was moved as needed.
Color Hive inks in Rah Rah Skirt, Sugar Plum and Purple Rain were swatched onto a craft mat. Then, a brush was dipped into water and then dipped into the swatched color. This color was then painted onto the center of the stamped flowers. A water bottle was then used to spray the colored images creating a watercolor effect.
The stems of the flowers were then colored with the Color Hive ink Limewired.
After the panel had dried completely, white ink was used to add splatter to the panel.
To finish the card off, Black Eclipse gems were added.
I hope you create something today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
