Now onto my card! I love this gorgeous set and wanted to use the various layers of the set. I created a beautiful watery background for the images--read on for the details!
I began by taping around the edges of a 4" x 5-¼" watercolor panel with masking tape. First I used a wide brush to add water to the entire panel. Then I did a swirly wash of color by using Lagoon from the 36 Pan Watercolor Set creating a watery ombré background. I set this aside to dry. Once dry, I slowly peeled off the masking tape. I love how this turned out!
Next I stamped the Indian Lotus flowers in shades of pink from the Rose Petals Dye Ink Cube set. I stamped the greenery with greens from the Green Fields Dye Ink Cube set. To give the images somewhat of a "no-line" look, I also stamped the outline stamp in a medium shade from those ink cube sets.
I used the coordinating Indian Lotus dies to cut them all out. Then I added foam tape to the back of the flowers.
I stamped the sentiment that's in the Indian Lotus set in black ink and trimmed it with my paper trimmer.
