Beautiful flowers, no line watercoloured, clean and simple handmade card by Debby Hughes using products from Simon Says Stamp. Find out more here: https://limedoodledesign.com/2018/09/stamptember-2018-party/

Today’s post is part of a super special STAMPtember party! All the details are below but think more of a scavenger hunt than a blog hop. To kick things off, I pulled out the new Beautiful Flowers 2 set for some clean and simple no line watercolouring. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.

The original Beautiful Flowers set was a huge hit, and I’m sure the sequel will be too as the Beautiful Flowers 2 set is also filled with stunning floral images – an abundant bouquet, add-on images and stand-alone ones too and there are matching dies! Recently, more and more I’m finding myself drawn back to the clean and simple style I started out with all those years ago. Sometimes I get sidetracked, but ultimately CAS design always has my heart. So for this card, I used painters tape to mask a border on a panel of watercolour card and stamped the large bouquet image from the Beautiful Flowers 2 set with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink to fill space. Usually, I use Antique Linen ink, but my mini ink pad has had so much use it is getting a bit dry so I thought I’d experiment and try out the Distress Oxide equivalent – and it worked perfectly! I painted the border with Daniel Smith watercolours and accented a few details with Faber Castell pencils, white gel pen and white gouache. Gouache is an opaque watercolour, and white gouache is excellent for adding back in highlights to petal tips. I always have a well in my palette dedicated to white gouache.

For the sentiment, I stamped a greeting from the new Your Greatest Dreams set in clear embossing ink on Slate card and white heat embossed before trimming to a skinny banner and adding with foam adhesive below the flower border.

Finally, I added the watercolour card to a Fog card base with foam adhesive. I did think about adding sequins, enamel dots or similar but in the end, I preferred the clean look.

Isn’t that sentiment just perfect for a little encouragement?! I’ll be sending this card to my niece who is struggling with a decision as to whether to move to another country to follow her dreams. I can see myself turning to the Your Greatest Dreams set a lot for this type of greeting.
