Happy Monday to all! I'm on the Art Impressions blog today with my card using the Succulents Set.
I used Canson Watercolor paper and my MISTI to stamp a few of the succulents from the set into a background pattern. These were stamped with Versamark and heat embossed in white. A couple weekends ago I was so happy to be at an event and took a class where I learned to used Ken Oliver's Color Bursts to watercolor. I used four colors to watercolor the succulents. I did the background first though, so I could see the images better. I used a Tombow marker in Willow Green for that.
I've listed the colors below, but really, after doing a web search for succulents, you can use just about any nature-y color you want! Once everything was dry, I used a stitched square die to cut the panel out and used double-sided tape to adhere it to a 5-3/4" x 5-3/4" card base. I used 110# Neenah Solar White for the card base since the watercolor panel is heavier too.
I stamped the sentiment from the WC Sentiments Set with Versafine Onyx Black and die cut it with a die from Flag Double Stitched Dies. I used some foam squares to pop it up and scattered a few clear dew drops from my stash across the card.
As always, I appreciate you stopping by for a look! Have a great week---stay crafty!
