Popped up bloomsPosted: July 18, 2018
This is the last of my cards made featuring the stitched blooms dies paired with my homemade dotty watercolour panels. I embossed the radiating half tone stamp from MFT on watercolour paper three times then painted over the embossing with Catherine Pooler inks. I used pinks and yellows on one panel then blue and yellow on the others which ended up giving me blue and green variations. You can see the other cards made with the dotty panels here and the card stenciled through a leftover die cut negative here.
To create this card I attached a watercoloured dotty panel to adhesive backed foam and cut as many dots, leaves and flowers as I could. The watercolour paper attached to foam did make a thick panel for the die cutter to manage so a few passes were necessary. I arranged all my little elements on a white panel along with some letters die cut using the ‘little lowercase letters’ dies from MFT and a sentiment from ‘Yay for you’ stamp set.
I love the dimension of the foam backed elements on this card and the teal/blue colour scheme; it pleases my matchy-matchy heart.
