Colour Combo November Blog Hop


Welcome to the Colour Combo November Blog Hop with this month's Color Challenge featuring So Saffron, Blackberry Bliss and Blushing Bride. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you to explore this month's color combination.
For my card design today, I am sharing a Sneak Peek of a new stamp set from the upcoming January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. The Blessings of Home stamp set has a combination of beautiful floral images and wonderful sentiments to create cards for all occasions. I decided to use a watercolor technique using a Blender Pen and Classic ink to color this beautiful image.

This clean and simple card design features a couple of simple techniques. The first one is heat embossing an image with Classic ink. I inked up the floral image with Versamark and then inked it up with Blackberry Bliss Classic ink before stamping it onto the center of the Basic White cardstock. I then applied Clear embossing powder and tapped off the excess before heat embossing it. This gives the image a beautiful Blackberry Bliss embossed image that is perfect for watercoloring. The second technique I used with this card design, is watercoloring with Classic inks and a Blender Pen. I squeezed the closed ink pads so that some of the ink transferred to the inside of the lid. I then used this ink to apply color to the image with the Blender Pen. I layered the color to give the flowers depth and dimension. I used So Saffron Classic ink for the small flowers at the top of the image and for the centers of the flowers. I used Blackberry Bliss Classic ink to color the two larger flowers and the Blushing Bride Classic ink to color the medium size flowers. For the leaves, I used the Clear Wink of Stella to color them to give them a golden shimmer. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image onto the Blackberry Bliss cardstock strip  with Silver embossing powder and attached it across the bottom of the card front. For a touch of bling, I added small Basic Rhinestone Jewels to the sentiment strip and card front to complete the design. I love how soft and pretty this card looks and how these colors give the card a vintage feel.
