Hello and welcome to Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop! Yay!
Watercolouring is currently a massive trend with the cardmakers. So this hop is going to great fun and also a great resource for watercoloured cards.
I have three projects for the blog hop. Here is my first card.
I have used Addie’s garden stamp set from Winnie & Walter to stamp and white heat embossed on watercolour card stock. Then I have used the Zig Real Brush watercolour pens to colour the images and the background. Once dry, I die cut the stitched rectangle panel from Pretty Pink Posh Stitched duo 2 die set. I also die cut three more of the rectangles using scrap cardstock. All the rectangle die cuts were stacked and glued with the watercoloured rectangle die cut on the top.
I adhered the watercoloured rectangle frame on the card front using foam adhesives. Then inlaid the stacked stitched rectangle panel back in its place. I then stamped the sentiment from The Party stamp set also from Winnie & Walter. Then the gorgeous Sparkly Clear sequins accented and pulled the card together. Here is a closeup!
Here is second card for the hop.
On this card, I have used Bohemian Garden stamp set from Essential By Ellen which I have stamped and white heat embossed on watercolour card. The flwers and leaves are watercoloured using Zig Gansai Tambi Watercolour. I then spattered some black Mr. Huey on the panel. The frame is from Taylored Expression called Frame in a Frame die set which is adhered using foam adhesive for some dimension. The sentiment is from Amazing Women stamp set from Essential By Ellen. Finally accented with Pretty Pink Posh’s Onyx sequins. Here is a closeup!
And finally the last card for the hop.
I stamped and watercoloured to create my own pattern paper. The stamp sets I used are from Simon Says Stamp’s Friendly Flowers stamp set and Wplus9’s Fresh Cut Florals. I inked them with distress inks, misted with water and stamped on the watercolour paper. That gave a lovely watercolour look but I wanted the edges to wash out and not be perfect. So I sprayed the entire stamped panel with water to get the colours to bleed and soften the edges of the images. I used Mama Elephant dies to die cut the scallop panel. The panel looks so pretty but very bold. I then die cut a vellum panel using the same Mama Elephant die set to layer over the panel. Then sentiment is stamped on the Stitched Banner Duo die die cut using white cardstock which is layered on the vellum. The sentiment is from Strictly Sentiment 5 stamp set from Wplus9. Finally accented with Orchid, Lime Sorbet and Amethyst sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Here is a closeup!
