How to Make a Watercolour Floral Card
Create a simple yet effective watercolour masterpiece for your loved ones with this fabulous step-by-step project by Emily Frasier, a member of the Crafter’s Companion Design Team.
Start out with a 5.5" x 4.25" piece of watercolour cardstock, and a fussy cut stamped image on masking paper.
Stamp the image using VersaMark and heat emboss it with white embossing powder.
Use the masked image to cover the embossed image.
Stamp two more images on the sides of the masked image and also heat emboss them.
Tips: When you stamped the two images on the sides make sure you put good pressure on your stamp. The center image has some dimension due to the embossing; pressing hard ensures that you get a good imprint.
Use Spectrum Aqua markers to add colour in the centre of the flower. Use a water brush to blend it outward.
Using another complementary colour to the chosen colour in step 5, colour the edge of the flower. Next, use a water brush to blend the colour inward.
Tips: Give it a good blend where the two colours meet.
Continue colouring all the other flowers.
Adhere the finish card front to a card base, add sentiment, and few sequins.
