Today, we're so lucky to have Sindhu Prajay joining us on the blog with a trio of stunning watercolor floral cards.
Hello everyone, Sindhu here. I'm so thrilled to be here today as a Guest Designer for MFT! I can't wait to show you what I created for today's post. I'm so grateful to MFT for this amazing opportunity. It is a dream come true for me.
The first card features the super gorgeous Rose Garden stamp set. I started by stamping the image onto a piece of Arches Cold Press 140 lb card stock. I wanted to do the no-line water technique on the image so I stamped the image with Natural Hybrid Ink. It is a very light coloured ink and sometimes it might be difficult to see the image clearly on a paper with a lot of texture. I used a MISTI to stamp the image multiple times so that it would be easier to see while colouring.
I used Daniel Smith watercolors to colour the entire image. I added a wash of watercolour, and after everything was dry, added white paint splatters.
For my second card, I used the single image from the same Rose Garden stamp set. On a piece of watercolour card stock, I stamped just the flower three times, masking the stem. I overlapped a couple of flowers. Before stamping, I masked all four edges of the card stock to have a clean border in the end. I painted them and added a light wash of watercolor. I embossed the big "You" sentiment, and added another coordinating sentiment on a strip of kraft card stock.
For my last card, I used the gorgeous Floral Focus stamp set. I stamped the image with Natural Hybrid Ink and coloured it with Daniel Smith watercolors. I die cut the image using coordinating Die-namics, but didn't use the whole image on the card — I just cut parts of the image from it. It was so easy to do as the image was already cut. I die cut a piece of watercolor card stock using the Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX, and painted a light wash of watercolor as a backdrop for my image. I added a sentiment strip, and adhered the images.
I hope you like what I made — thanks for visiting and have a great day.
