This is one of the cards I created for the Fond Memories Spring Workshop. Have to say Penny Black is one of my favorite stamps companies so this was a fun card to create.
Stamps: Penny Black Poppy Gems
Sentiment stamp: JustRite “Sweet Flowers & Vines”
Paper: Cardbase: Orange “Tangy” 5.5. x 8.5 (folded for 4.25 x 5.5. card)
Watercolor 4.25 x 5.5, scrap 2 x3, watercolor or other white .5 x 2.5
Versafine Black to stamp Poppy and Sentiment
Distress Inks to paint flower
Flowers: Fired brick, Rusty Hinge, Wild Honey, Walnut Stain
Leaves: Bundled sage, Peeled Paint
Background: Tumbled Glass
Distress Glitter-Brushed Corduroy
Adhesive such as Matte Medium
Stamp the Poppy Stamp on Watercolor paper with Black Versafine. With the scrap watercolor paper stamp the large flower. Let dry for a few minutes
Paint the flowers using the Fired Brick, Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey. Walnut Stain is used for the flower center.
HINT: When doing watercolor you can add water to an area and then add your color.
HINT: When coloring paint one area and then go to another so not working next to a wet area.
HINT: Use two jars of water-one for clean and one for dirty so you are not mixing colors,
Cut the flower painted on the scrap by hand and using 3M dimension tape place over the same flower on the card.
Paint the leaves using the Bundled Sage and Peeled Paint. Add the Walnut Stain to the flower center. Add Matte Medium to the center followed by the Distress Glitter
Paint the background area using the Tumbled Glass. If you wet an area and follow with the distress ink you can move the color around.
Wrap the twine around the watercolor paper and tie with a knot. Do not trim yet. Stamp the sentiment, punch a whole and add to the twine before tying a bow. Adhere to the watercolor image to the cardbase.
