This weekend is a long weekend for me here in Perth, Australia. Monday is Western Australia Day which is public holiday. So we are having a relaxed three days as a family. Best thing ever.
Hello and welcome back to my blog. I am Gayatri and I am a cardmaker. This morning I watercoloured a background image. It was so relaxing. I love colouring. Doesn’t matter what medium it is. I used Migello Mission watercolour to colour white heat embossed background stamp from Simon Says Stamp called Gerbera Daisy background stamp. This is a newly released stamp from Celebrate You collection. Once I coloured the whole image, I made two cards out of the panel. Here are the card set.
I trimmed Bristol Smooth cardstock to 6×6 inches to stamped the Gerbera Daisy background stamp with versamark and white heat emboss using Simon’s white embossing powder. Using Migello Mission watercolours, I coloured the flowers. I was so inspired by my fellow cardmaker Debby Hughes’s colour palette of muted colours, that I wanted to try it on this panel. Debby is very talented and her colour palettes are always mature and sophisticated. I am not great at watercolouring as Debby but I can always try. Hence this muted, earthy autumn colours of Gerbera daisies on my panel. I actually loved the muted earthy colours. Then I also spattered the entire panel with the same colours as well as black and white watercolour. This gives a gorgeous artistic feel.
Once dry, I die cut a panel using the largest of the Wonky Stitched rectangle die and trimmed the leftover for another card. I adhered the rectangle panel on kraft cardbase using craft foam for one card, and glued the other piece on another kraft card base stamped with the same Gerbera Daisy stamp in versamark.
To each of the card, I added brown twine to keep the earthy feel. For the sentiment, I used Chillin Frenchies stamp set and the Tiny Words Birthday stamp set. I simply white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and used the labels dies to die cut them out. I trimmed the sentiment strips and adhered on both the cards as shown.
A few pieces of Moonshine sequins from Simon with silver stickles at the centre finishes off the cards. Now grab a cuppa and enjoy the individual card photos and closeups
Well, hope you like my cards. If you get inspired by my projects, please don’t forget to share and tag me on social media. Have a lovely weekend!
