First up is this one using the You’re So Lovely set. The technique for this card is so simple and yet I find it packs a real punch. To start I stamped the sentiment in the middle of a panel of Arches watercolor card with Versamark and gold heat embossed.
Then I stamped the various flower, berry and leaf images with Distress Markers; coloring directly to the stamp, huffing on them so my breath added a little moisture and then stamping.
After which I took a just-damp paint brush and moved the color around slightly, adding in some shadows here and there by picking up more of the marker colors scribbled on to an acrylic block.
I used the same die to help me align the sentiment from the set on a card base cut from Charcoal layering papers and then stamped with Versamark and white heat embossed before mounting the panel with foam tape on top.
