For my technique, I chose to watercolor the dry embossed image from the Lovely Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder (item #148048) using Watercolor Pencils. I love the soft look created by these beautiful pencils and the large floral image from the embossing folder is perfect for a card front design.To create this card, I chose Blueberry Bushel cardstock for the card base and I added a layer of Very Vanilla cardstock that I embossed with the Lovely Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder. This beautiful embossing folder is retiring and is only available while supplies last, so make sure you order it before it disappears. I colored the embossed image with a variety of colors from the Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils and used a Blender Pen to soften and blend the color for a smooth watercolor look. I added small Basic Pearls that I colored using the Dark Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blends Marker (item #147030) added them to the centers of the small blue flowers.
To create the sentiment, I chose one from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set (item #146667) in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. I love the variety of sentiments in this stamp set and the fonts are wonderful. I stamped it onto a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock with Blueberry Bushel Classic ink and I created a banner look on both ends with my Paper Snips.
To finish off the card design, I added a piece of Blueberry Bushel 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon (item #146950) across the bottom of the card front and attached the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals. To embellish the sentiment, I added two small Basic Pearls that I colored with the Dark Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blends Marker.Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today and view my card design.
