I played around with some watercoloring with the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle after seeing so many pretty cards done with this technique- the first one I saw was Sandi MacIver’s creation that inspired me. The bouquet is so gorgeous it can just stand alone on a card but I placed mine in an embossed vellum jar:)
I used my Ruffled Embossing Folder for the backround- so elegant, so vintage…don’t you think?
A bit of gold really dresses up the card, too!
Notice the only stamping on the card is the sentiment! However, there are a TON of flowers and greenery in the set- it is so packed with versatile stamps that mix and match with so many other sets. Take a look on Pinterest under “Stampin’ Up Beautiful Bouquet.” The flowers were die cut from watercolor paper and then moistened with Flirty Flamingo ink using an aquapainter so the Berry Burst ink would run a bit when added last with the aquapainter again. Every one turns out differently so play around and don’t be too picky!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…
Wow….that is really pretty!
BEAUTIFUL Cindy! Love the vellum jar, white embossing, and the ruffled background. Very pretty!
