Watercolour Floral Mother's Day Card Part 2 | Concord & 9th Hello Lovely
Updated: Sep 14
Hello, again my friends!! Thank you so much for stopping by, Today I have for you a watercoloured Floral mother's day card featuring the Concord and 9th Hello Lovely Stamp set. Let's jump right in.
I started with a piece of Arches Coldpress watercolour cardstock, treated it with my antistatic powder bag and used my Mini Misti to stamp the big floral image a few times with VersaMark embossing ink, I then coated it with Brutus Monroe's Alabaster white embossing powder and heat set it until it was smooth and melted. I taped the watercolour paper to a hardboard to prevent warping while painting on my watercolours.
I used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and Wilted Violet Distress Ink for the watercolours. I did a base wash of colour with each of the light colours then went in with the darker colours to enhance the shadows within the image.
After the panel was dry I took the matching die and cut out my image, as well as a piece of white fun foam to add some dimension. I had precut my A2 side folding card base, Black matte and Fog panel each 1/8 of an inch smaller than the last. I put the Fog panel into my Mini Misti to stamp down the happy mother's day sentiment using VersaMark Clair Nocturn ink, then glued my layers together. Once everything had adhered I took out some Pretty Pink Post Clear Jewels and added some to the background for a little shine.
Thank you so much for stopping by to check out my Mother's day card!!! If you would like to watch a step by step of how I made this card you will find a video posted down below, as well as a full supplies list. I will see you again real soon!!
