Good morning and Happy New Year’s Eve eve! 😉 Today I’m sharing a card featuring stand-alone dies with Colorburst powders and Stick-It adhesive!
I started by spraying a large piece of watercolor paper with water. While it was still wet I sprinkled Merlot, Alizarin Crimson, and Pthalo Green Colorburst powders onto the paper trying to keep them in separate areas of the paper. I let them dry naturally and didn’t blend or smooth them out in any way. Once the paper was totally dry I applied a sheet of Stick-It adhesive to the back of the watercolor paper and used it to die-cut the Wild Garden flowers and leaves from Ellen Hutson. I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from Papertrey Ink on a large fishtail banner and then arranged the die-cuts around the banner. Once I was happy with the placement I removed the release paper from the Stick-It and permanently adhered some of the flowers to the grey cardstock base. I attached the fishtail banner with foam mounting tape and then arranged and adhered the rest of the flowers to the banner. I used foam mounting tape to adhere the flowers that hung off the edge of the banner to the grey cardstock base. Finally I finished the card with a sprinkling of sparkling clear sequins.
Since the weather around here currently feels more like spring than winter I thought this card was particularly appropriate! 😉 Thanks so much for visiting and check back tomorrow for a special year in review post and giveaway!! Have a fantastic day!

Thanks so much for the inspiration! The new 3-d flower dies by Stampin Up will be perfect for this technique.

Hey Jess, beautiful as alway. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Jessica, Beautiful card! Makes me want to try out my new Color Burst! I’d love to see a picture of the watercolored sheet also so I can see how you place the colors. No one ever shows that part. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
