An open drawn stamp is a great opportunity to stamp, heat emboss and watercolor. Watercoloring a heat embossed image is for me, the easiest way to find success. The waterproof ridges created with the embossing will hold in the fluid, making it a more controlled process. In this project, I will use just one stamp pad to get various shades of pink.
The center flower medallion is created from watercolor paper. I have stamped the image in VersaMark ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder. Taking a strip of watercolor paper, I stamped on the smoothest side, keeping the edge of the stamp on the paper. After the flowers were colored with a water brush and dry, I fussy cut the outside of the flowers, but made sure to keep the strip intact. I attached the strip to the card with foam dimensionals.
The background, or card front, is stamped with multi-generational ink from Pink Pirouette stamp pad. I used several small stamps from the So in Love stamp set to get a look of dimension. Tucked under the large watercolored strip is silver thread and pearls.
Measurements for this project are:
-Card Base of Pink PIrouette card stock: 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ (scored and folded from 4 1/4″ x 11″)
-Very Vanilla card stock (for the layer) cut at 4 1/8 ” x 5 3/8″
-Watercolor card stock (for the card front) cut at 2 1/4 ” x 5″
