Breathtaking Bouquet - Watercolouring On Coloured Card


Good Morning :o)

I've used the lovely Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp again today. This time I've watercoloured the image on to coloured cardstock.

I kept the layout simple because I wanted as much of this beautiful image to show - in fact the layout is the same as the cards I created last week with this stamp, although the products are different :o) You can see those HERE.


The technique is pretty simple. You would first stamp your image and emboss it if you wish to. I heat embossed with White powder on to Sahara Sand cardstock.

You then need to add a layer of White pigment ink - I used our Whisper White Craft ink. This will cover your image with an opaque white layer. I applied this with one of our Aqua Painters, adding just a little water to it first. You then need to leave this to dry - or dry it with your Heat Tool. Then you can watercolour as normal. 

Watercolouring will reactivate the pigment ink a little so your colours will be a little more muted, but will still look glorious :o)

I used many colours for this card including three different greens for all the leaves. The Flowers were coloured using Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry, Highland Heather and Flirty Flamingo with a little Soft Suede.

The sentiment is one I had left over from my previous cards and comes from the Label Me Bold stamp set. I stamped this with Versafine Onyx Black ink and Heat Embossed it with Clear powder.

Painted Poppies - Gift Box and Card - Video Tutorial


Today's Video shows you how I created this Gift Box.

I used the Painted Poppies stamp set and coordinating Painted Labels dies as well as the beautiful Peaceful Poppies stamp set.


The Gift Box measures 7½" tall x 2¾" wide x 1½" deep. 

I used Versafine Onyx Black ink for the outlines on the flowers and leaves and heat embossed them using Clear powder.


It opens at the top. The base was constructed from Mossy Meadow cardstock. The red layer is Poppy Parade.


This is the card I created to go with it. I don't show you how to make this in the Video, but I do give you the measurements for it below. The design is very simple. I did add additional layers to the Flower head and the bud.


The Rhinestones were coloured using the Dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends alcohol marker.

Here is the Video ...
