Happy Thursday, all! Today I have a simple watercolor card for you. When I saw the large flowers and leaves in the new Bouquet Builder 2 stamp set from Waffle Flower, I thought it would be fun to paint it similar to vintage botanical drawings–put a wide white border around it and place a small word near the bottom of the stem. And it turned out great!
(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
To make the painting easier, I used white embossing powder over the stamped image. After the embossing powder was heat set and melted, the lines of the image were raised and resisted the watercolor. Therefore, it contained the paint and made it super easy to control where I was painting.
For a greeting, I used the small “Miss you” from Waffle Flower’s Wish stamp set.
