Today’s post is part of a blog hop to celebrate the new Fresh Bloom release from Simon Says Stamp. More on the hop below, but for now let’s jump in to process for this layered watercolour card featuring the gorgeous Pretty Peonies Background set combined with the Triangle Blast stencil and a sentiment from the Buttercup set. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
LAYERED WATERCOLOUR BACKGROUND
I started this card by stamping the Pretty Peonies Background stamp in clear embossing ink on Arches Hot Pressed watercolour card (its smooth texture makes for a good stamped impression) and white heat embossed.
I loosely painted the background with Daniel Smith watercolours. In particular:
Once the watercolour was dry, I swiped Moonstone Glimmer Paste over the Triangle Blast stencil. The sparkle on this card is unbelievable, and I really like how the graphic triangles play over the soft floral background.
For the sentiment, I stamped a fun greeting from the Buttercup set in clear embossing ink on Vellum and white heat embossed before trimming to a banner. I folded the vellum over the top of the watercoloured panel and secured on the reverse, and then a skinny piece of foam adhesive behind the white embossing helped to keep the vellum in place. Finally, I added the finished panel to an Ivory card base and embellished with sequins and pearls.
