Hand Drawn Florals Week - Day 1

April 30, 2018

Hey, it's Caryn here sharing a card using the very pretty and versatile Hand Drawn Florals stamp set.  I love the whimsical feel of the flowers and they are so fun to colour.  Today I've used the Sapphire and Mint to Be liquid watercolours mixed with some subtle shimmer and a few Nuvo drops here and there for added bling.

I started with a stone coloured card base and added a white die cut using Horizontal Stripes (my favourite!).  I stamped the flowers using Versamark ink onto the textured side (just for a change) of some Tim Holtz watercolour cardstock and heat embossed them with Avery Elle Silver embossing powder I painted them with the watercolours and then decided to fussy cut them instead of die cut them with the dies. 

 I then simply arranged the flowers how I wanted them to the card front and finished with a sentiment from the Floral Bouquet set and a few clear sequins.

Such a beautiful card! I love the silver embossing with the blue colored flowers! What color ink did you use on the sentiment? I noticed you listed a grey ink, but it looks green on my screen. Regardless, it's a lovely color.

Hi Cathy - it's Avery Elle Fog Dye Ink - definitely a grey - like a battleship grey I'd say. xxx

Thank you Caryn! It's such a nice color and I wanted to make sure I wrote down the correct color name.
