Flowers – Wild Roses

Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a great summer! And maybe you enjoy cooler temperatures than ours.

I have a beautiful flowers’ card today made using a kind of a not so new technique for me: watercolouring. Technique, I haven’t used quite in a long time (since highschool).

So, first I stamped the DoCrafts Papermania Botanicals’ Wild Rose in black pigment ink on watercolour paper. The next step was the colouring part. I usually go for markers or inks, but after I tried my Promarkers I thought I’d like a softer look and went on trying my Papermania watercolour pencils. Here’s a look at my trial cover for the card. A bit messy, isn’t it? Or not.

When finished with the colouring part, I went on adhering the front to the kraft card and because I wanted a bit of a border, I trimmed the watercolour front panel. Next after adhering the cover with foam tape, I thought about adding a bit of sparkle with some adhesive gem stones. Hope you like the result. I know I do.

Here is the gallery with the card:
