Hello ~ Accented Blooms

Summer is well and truly with us here in North Texas – we are forecast for 100F+ for the next 10 days.  My garden is looking a little parched despite the fact I am out watering at 7am every day!

One thing that will not fade away in the heat is the lovely flowers that are part of the Accented Blooms Stamp Set.  I have used So Saffron, Pool Party, Powder Pink and Pear Pizzazz to watercolor my flowers and they are still as vibrant as the day I painted them.

Card base:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Pear Pizzazz Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4

Layer 1:  5 1/4 x 4 Whisper White Card ~ run thru the Big Shot with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder

Layer 2:  3 3/4 x 3 3/4 Powder Pink Card

Layer 3:  3 1/2 x 3 1/2 Water Color Paper

Ink Colors: Stazon Black, So Saffron, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Powder Pink

I used my Aqua Painter to color the flowers and leaves, starting with quite a pale wash in each color then allowing it to dry before adding a little more depth of color for the centers of each one.  I used a paper plate and put a little drop of ink from the ink refills then watered down my colors before applying them to the card.    I did get a little over-enthusiastic with the So Saffron and it  bled a little, but since this is water coloring I don’t think it matters too much.

I chose the 3/8 Pool Party Shimmery  Ribbon and the coordinating Tailored Tag Punch to add my greeting.   Hello is such a bright and cheery word, I think this greeting would work for almost any occasion, birthday, thank you, thinking of you…………
