In my project today I decided to incorporate two of my favourite techniques: watercolour and inlaid die-cutting. I have used a brand new set called Rose Wonder with coordinating Rose Garden Thinlit Dies – perfect for techniques!
We’ve been given a theme ONE, to use only one stamp set, one ink pad, one DSP, one cardstock etc. Luckily we could also use heat embossing and embellishments. I had to come up with some smart idea how to create my watercolour card with just one ink pad.
For a watercolour panel, I’ve used Lost Lagoon ink pad. It’s such a beautiful shade of blue. But how to create a rose if you only have one ink colour? Perfectly Artistic DSP came as a rescue! All inner pieces of my flower and leaves were die-cut from this DSP and “inlaid” into the rose frame. I love this beautiful paper. It has a marbled effect design on one side, while the reverse side has a watercolour wash. And what’s even better, this paper will be available as a FREEBIE during Sale-a-bration!
The frame of the flower, as well as sentiment, are heat embossed in silver. A glittery strip of paper is heat embossed too, using Heat and Stick powder and silver glitter.
For my sentiment, I created simple, little banner with a piece of silver doily underneath to add some dimension. Don’t you just love this beautiful font? I’m in love with sentiments in this set.
I truly hope you enjoyed coming to my blog and see my card.
