Hello, crafty friends! With Mother’s Day right around the corner here in the US, the Flower Silhouettes Set from My Favorite Things can be a perfect choice for your Mother’s Day cards!
I love how this kit can be used to create all types of floral cards. I used a watercolor stamping technique today, similar to that of a card that I had presented last week. If you had missed that post, it’s basically inking up an image and then spritzing it lightly with water each time before you stamp.
This time, I combined my images with the Flower Vase Die-namics to create a beautiful flower bouquet. I love how this fits beautifully on a slimline card (measuring at 8.5″ tall x 3.5″ wide). I used a piece of Primitive Cream Card Stock for my base and splattered it lightly with some brown watercolor paint.
Once dry, I then stamped my sentiment with some Milk Chocolate Ink a couple of times with my Misti Stamping Tool. I then added a strip of both Milk Chocolate and Kraft Card Stock at the bottom for some added interest.
I diecut the vase from some Ranger Watercolor Paper and then used some teal green watercolors to paint it. I used a couple of layers to give the color some depth and let some water dry in various lines across the image to look like cracks in the vase.
I also used Ranger Watercolor Paper to stamp my images and cut each flower piece out with it’s coordinating die. I used Distress Inks to stamp my images but most slow drying inks should work wonderfully with this technique.
