Golden blessings

Garden golden

I have a bright spring card today made using a colouring technique which is quick and easy but really pops on coloured cardstock. I stamped the flowers in versamark and embossed in white powder on Summer Sun mix & match cardstock. I used watercolour pencils to add colour to the flowers and leaves. Blending them with water is very simple as it stays contained within the embossed outlines.

Thanks for visiting today.

Supplies:

Stamps:  Blooming Garden,  Treemendous PB)
Inks: Memento Cantaloupe  & Versamark (Tsukineko)
Cardstock:  Summer Sun mix & match cardstock
Also: Faber-Castell watercolour pencils, white e.p., orange grosgrain ribbon

    Pretty floral, nice colors! I love the way you have colored the shades so that it “shows” the light reflected on the blooms. :)
