Wplus9 Modern Anemones

Hey everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made over a month ago...just now getting around to posting it on my blog and YouTube channel.  It's been a busy summer, and time is flying by as usual!    I adore this stamp set from Wplus9, and wanted to try out my new Daniel Smith watercolors.  I found the best essential watercolor set, that came with the 238 dot chart.  I think it was the perfect starter set for me, and now I can try others colors out on the dot sheet before I invest in each tube.

I began by stamping Modern Anemones with Versamark ink and heat embossing all the images in gold.  This is the easiest way to watercolor, as it helps you stay in the lines.  I watercolored all of the flowers with Permanent Violet, and used Hansa Yellow Deep for the inside.  For the leaves I had a little more fun and used a mixture of Hansa Yellow Light, Veridian Green, and Amazonite Genuine.  I added some splatters of course, using the Finetec Pearlescent watercolors and in the end added some of the Deep Black to the very inside of the flowers as well.  I popped some of the flowers up on foam tape, and tucked the rest underneath each other.  I used the Kind Soul stamp set for the sentiment.  I have a tutorial on my YouTube channel if you would like to check it out.

Thanks so much for joining me!

  1. It is just amazing. You have created the best; the color combination used by you is just awesome. The foam you have used has given this a 3D look. It is very nice, keep posting more.
