Gosh there’s been so much going on with the Among The Stars release from Simon Says Stamp that I’m only just squeezing in time with the July Card Kit! However, seriously, just look at that Handwritten Floral Greetings kit stamp set; isn’t it just gorgeous!! All supplies are linked at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
On the watercolor card from the kit, I started in the bottom left corner and stamped the flower and leaves in Clear Embossing Ink and white heat embossed. I then masked these and stamped again, working my way out until I had the lower portion covered in flowers and leaves. I cut the panel with a Basic Rectangle and then set about watercoloring and when dry accenting with Prismacolor pencils.
I wrapped twine around the panel and added a tag from Bundle Of Stitched Shapes cut from Desert Storm card and white heat embossed with a sentiment from the Handwritten Floral Greetings set. I added the panel to a Fog card base and finally accented with a few sequins. My favorite way to add sequins at the moment is to look for colors in the card, so adding a yellow sequin to a yellow flower and a blue one to the sky. I find it adds sparkly interest while still being subtle and not taking away from the focal point :D
