Good afternoon! We’re celebrating the Summer of Stamping over at Ellen Hutson with another fabulous release! Did you miss last week’s exclusive collaboration with Lawn Fawn: S’More the Merrier?
This time we have three fantastic sets from Brandi Kinkaid: Mondo Pansy, You Should Know, Thanks For Being a Friend, and a combo bundle of all three sets! Today I dusted off my watercolors to use with the pretty Mondo Pansy!
I can’t tell you the last time I used my watercolors and I forgot how much I actually enjoy them! I know I’m not great with them but it’s a relaxing process when I let my perfectionist tendencies rest a bit! 😉 I used six Daniel Smith colors: indigo and prussian blue for the background; new gamboge, quinacridone coral, and quinacridone pink for the flowers; and payne’s gray for the leaves. After I finished painting I splattered the panel with white gouache and indigo paint and let it dry.
Next I stamped a sentiment from You Should Know onto white cardstock with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a thin label and adhered it to the card with foam mounting tape. Finally I finished the card with a sprinkling of clear sequins!
