Hi, it’s Mona Toth here, in this post I have three happy and colorful card inspirations for you. In this project I am featuring various stamp sets from the Watercolor Florals collection by Sushma Hegde.
For all the three cards I have used different watercolor washes. For these watercolor techniques I have used Art Essentials palettes by Jane Davenport to get this bright happy look.
For the first card I painted rainbow stripes with bright watercolor shades and a 14-size flat watercolor brush, then I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. Next, I stamped the floral images with watermark ink from the Fragrant Flowers Clear Stamp Set to a piece of vellum, and heat embossed it. In the end I added highlights and sparkle effect with white pen.
For the next card I created a distressed rainbow look to the background. I wet the watercolor paper and I did stippling on it with a 14-size rounded watercolor brush. I started with purple color and added the other colors to create this effect. Once it was dry, I stamped on it the sentiment with watermark ink, then I heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. In the end I added colorful water-colored florals which I have created with the Beauty in Bloom Clear Stamp Set and white embossing powder.
For the third card I have created a rainbow gradient wash with purple, pink, orange, yellow, green and blue colors. Once it was dry, I splattered on it with white watercolor. Once this was also dry, I stamped on it with Field of Flowers Clear Stamp Set and watermark ink, then I heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
I have also heat embossed the sentiment too, but with gold embossing powder instead of white. In the end I stamped a few more flowers to the background with watermark ink.
