Hey everyone! Today I'm trying to play catch up and share some recent cards I've made. We are still in the middle of our big move across the country...I'm currently at my Mom's in Missouri waiting to close on our new home in North Carolina. I brought plenty of crafty supplies with me, but am feeling a bit back in the dark ages without WiFi. Lol! The first card I wanted to share I used the beautiful stamp and die set from Gina K Designs Tropical Blooms. To make my card I stamped the floral images with VersaMark ink, masking each image and stamping again. Then I used gold embossing powder and heat set all of the images. I was stamping on Arches watercolor paper, and using the Embossing Buddy...but still found one area that didn't stamp perfect. I found the rough paper a bit harder to get a perfect image every time. So, next time I will make sure to double stamp my images. After heat setting, I watercolored the flowers with St. Petersburg White Night 36 pan watercolor set. I'm having so much fun with these watercolors! I think they are a wonderful artist grade set for beginners that doesn't break the bank, very worth the wait ordering from the UK. Especially if you aren't quite ready to buy ALL the watercolors, as I have. ;) I added a few extra colors to the original 36 color palette, so I'm sharing my personal palette colors below. These are my favorite colors, for now anyway. I find watercoloring so quick, easy and so relaxing. Which is totally what I need right now with all of our moving adventures going on!
