One of my favorite looks for floral stamps is to leave the flowers themselves uncolored (for the most part), and just color the leaves . . . In this case, watercolor them with green and gold shimmery metallic watercolors.
The flowers were stamped, and then I heat set the ink so I could mask them off to stamp the leaves.
OK, so I guess this is really two ways, but one way gets you two cards for the price of one. These two were created by stamping, watercoloring and die cutting a whole bunch of leaves and then using the floating die cuts / frame technique. I’ve done floating die cuts before, but hadn’t tried this variation yet and followed a video done by my friend Jennifer McGuire to create this pair.
No flowers at all?
I think it works.
I have another post scheduled for tomorrow. Holiday cuteness involved.
Thanks for poppin’ in!
