My summer garden inspired the big floral explosion on this card. This was the first time I’ve used these watercolor stamps by Art Impressions. It was very addictive. Watching the bouquets come to life is magical. Creating depth with a mask.
To create the row of stamped pots I made a mask out of the pot and used it to create depth. The first pot I stamped was the third on from the left. After I stamped the middle pot I laid down the mask on top of it and then stamped a pot to the left, overlapping the image a bit. Then I put the mask down on that second pot and stamped the far left, over lapping again. The pot on the far right was stamped last. Build a bouquet.
Using the Art Impressions foliage and flower sets I created the bouquets inside my pots. Layering the branches and stamping each one at least 2 times helps to create depth.
I water colour the blue background and base with watered down marker. I do this by rubbing the marker on a piece of acetate and using a brush I water down the marker colour and then paint around the pots.
Add a 3D Pot
To make the 3 dimensional pot I stamped a pot on watercolor paper and fussy cut it out.
I laid collared three different markers colours on my watercolor paper and activated it with water. Using the sizzle dies I cut out branches to fill my pot. The pot and branches are raised up off the page with 3D Foam Circles.
To finish off the card I added dots with Ranger Enamel dots and and sticker from Echo Park’s Spring collection.
