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.



Step 1
Start out with a 5.5" x 4.25" piece of watercolour cardstock, and a fussy cut stamped image on masking paper.


Step 2
Stamp the image using VersaMark and heat emboss it with white embossing powder.

 


Step 3
Use the masked image to cover the embossed image.



 
Step 4
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.
 

Step 5
Use Spectrum Aqua markers to add colour in the centre of the flower. Use a water brush to blend it outward.



Step 6
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.


Step 7
Continue colouring all the other flowers.
 




Step 8
Adhere the finish card front to a card base, add sentiment, and few sequins.
