WPLUS9 STAMPTEMBER

What a beautiful floral set the Humble & Kind set is! I’m in full on winter mode it appears, so I thought I’d watercolour winter flowers by deepening my colour scheme and adding in glittery snowflakes.

I stamped the group floral line image from the Humble & Kind set in clear embossing ink on hot pressed watercolour paper and white heat embossed. I then pulled out my Daniel Smith watercolours. If you are not sure if you will like these paints, Simon sells a sampler sheet, which contains a small dot of each of my most favourite colours so that you can try the paints at a reasonable price point.

I started by watercolouring a deep background of Blue Apatite Genuine and then sprinkling with salt crystals and leaving it to dry. The salt crystals pool the watercolour around them creating puddles of rich colour and the salt also absorbs some of the colour leaving a highlight area where the crystals touch the paper – such an interesting texture.

After the background was dry, I painted the flower with a dilute Quinacridone Coral mix to give a lovely light pink and combined that with Hansa Yellow Light for the flower centre then, when dry, I accented the painting with coloured pencils.

The leaves are mainly Undersea Green with touches of yellow and blue for variation. For the sentiment, I pressed embossing ink onto a scrap of card and embossed it with Antique Gold embossing powder several times before die cutting with the Winter die. I also ran the heat tool over it after die cutting to give a nice smooth finish.

I mounted the Winter die cut over the watercolour with foam adhesive and paired it with a ‘WISHES’ sentiment from Advent Sentiments. To create the winter scene, I die cut several snowflakes from Ivory card using the Kate, and Snow Flurries dies, rubbed Multi Medium Matte over them and dunked them in my favourite Rock Candy Distress Glitter. As a final touch, I accented the card with Sparkling Clear sequins and then foam mounted the panel on an Ivory card base.
