Hello friends Karan Gerber here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog.
Here in Ontario, the colours have taken over the trees and bright oranges, yellows and reds are all over our island. It sure is a beautiful site to see. My card is inspired by these beautiful fall colours and I wanted to show you how I created these gorgeous little flowers.To begin with, we will need to cut out some florals and leaves from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Florals 5. (large, medium small, 2 small as well as some leaves) I cut these out on watercolor paper from Canson. I am using watercolours from Elizabeth Craft Designs as well to colour the flowers. I used the waterbrush that comes with the set to colour using permanent yellow.
I also coloured the leaves the Yellow Green shaping them with the Golf tool from Dress My Crafts allows me to give the paper a groove in the middle of the petals. Turn the petals and leaves over and lighten moisten from the back. I used threaded pollen from Dress my Crafts to detail my floral centers. When I had all my flowers assembled, I dabbed a bit of snow paste on to add a little texture and detail with glitter on top. The Elizabeth Craft Designs Pieces of Life 3 Stamp set is one of my favourites to add sentiments to my cards. I stamped You Are Amazing using Ranger Peeled Paint Distress ink and used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Fishtail die to cut it out.The half scalloped circle was created from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Sidekick 12 – Scallop Insert die set. The patterned paper on the card is from Simple Stories.
I hope you enjoyed this gorgeous little card and I would love to see your take on florals using watercolours. It is a great way to create fabulous flowers.
Happy Autumn Everyone!
