I don’t know about you, but I am DYING for springtime, so I knew this would have to be a floral card. I haven’t done any watercolor for a while, so I wanted to do that. I grabbed Altenew’s Beautiful Lady because it’s a good set for that and decided to use Zig Clean Color markers for the control I would need in tight areas. Lookie:
GOJUS! I stamped the flowers on watercolor paper using my MISTI in Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear EP.
I taped my paper down to a clipboards and started painting by misting the paper with water, then diving right in with my Zigs. There were no exact matches for Pool Party or Rich Razzleberry, so I combined a couple of different colors to get closer to them.
I stamped the Happy Birthday stamp on Soft Suede card stock with Versamark and heat emboss with white EP.
I added a couple of Stampin’ Up Metallic Enamel shapes to the upper right corner just to strengthen the visual triangle.
I trimmed the panel down and mounted it on Old Olive card stock and then used some white fun foam to pop it up over my card base. I think it turned out FABULOUS, and this is the SECOND clean and simple card I have made in a week! Ack! What happened to Fancy Jan? Will she return from the land of clean and simple? Will she find fulfillment in new stamps, inks, and card stock? Can she love fancy stamping again? Stay tuned for the next installment of…A Woman, Her Stamps, and the Cards She Makes!
