Sending Sunshine and Warm Hugs

Happy Sunday crafty friends! I hope you are having a good day! I have been enjoying watercoloring over the last couple of days and truly enjoyed working with Statement Flowers. I recently became a DT member at Crafty Meraki and my teammates have continued to inspire me with their talent. I placed an order recently at Crafty Meraki and was so impressed with the items in their shop, kind service, and SUPER fast shipping! I hope you will check it out!

I started by stamping Statement Flowers using WOW embossing ink on Canson XL Watercolor Card stock. I used a gold embossing powder for my image. I started by taping down my image to a board and couldn’t wait to water color. I used 2 different mediums, Gansai Tambi water colors and Peerless water colors. My first layer of color was made using Gansai Tambi. I used a wet on wet technique to color. I let layer 1 dry over night. The next day it was so nice out here, I decided to watercolor on my deck! It was so relaxing! I decided to add more layers using my Peerless water colors. I love intense color, so I opted to use these! I used a variety of shades until my coloring was complete on my floral image! I used shades of red, pink, purple, and blue in each floral. On the leaves I used green, blue, and yellow.

Once the floral was complete I felt I needed a background around the image. Unfortunately this didn’t go as planned. I wanted a dark gray around my image…. I don’t think I did the best job cleaning my brush last time…. it came out purple! So I had to go with it! I ended up liking it, adding shades of purple and some dark gray around sections. In the end, my accident turned out ok! Hope you think so too!

I chose 2 sentiments from the set and heat embossed both using a white powder on black card stock. I mounted the A2 panel onto a gray card base and foam mounted each sentiment. I added a few clear sequins for added sparkle!

Supplies Used:

  • Stamps: Statement Flowers – Altenew
  • Coloring Medium: Gansai Tambi Water Colors, Peerless Water Colors
  • Paper: Canson XL Watercolor Card Stock
  • Other: Sequins

I hope you will stop by Crafty Meraki to see their shop and to visit the blog (so much BEAUTIFUL inspiration)

Have a great rest of your Sunday!
