When I opened this kit, the first thing I noticed was the floral heart and the detail in it! It is so pretty and the perfect size to create a statement card like this one.
The first thing I did was to stamp the heart on watercolor paper using Versamark ink. I used bright white embossing powder to emboss the image. Then, I pulled out my Altenew pan watercolor set and water brushes (and a medium round paintbrush). I used the wet on wet technique to add color without hard lines.
I added a base color of a warm pink and dried that layer of color with my heat tool. I wet outside of the heart, just a little all the way around it, and pulled some of the color into opposite corners of the paper.
Then I added various shades of pinks and purples to different areas of the heart. I added clean, clear water with a regular paintbrush into the specific area I was working on. I dried between the application of each color.
Also, I used the regular paintbrush to add clear water to edges of the color so that it blends off into the paper a little bit more.
For the sentiment, I stamped it in Versamark ink then used black embossing powder over the stamped image. I stamped and embossed it twice, so the image would be really dark and raised. Then I used the PixScan Mat and my Silhouette Cameo to die cut the sentiment out.
There are some adorable hearts included in this set, and I stamped those in a dark pink ink then stamped them in Versamark ink so I could use Silver Pearl Embossing Powder. So pretty!
Lastly, I added some jewel drops, and that wraps up this card!
