Hi everyone! It’s Laura here, and today I am back with a quick and easy card featuring faux watercoloring with Tonic Studios Shimmer Powders and the gorgeous Studio Katia Blooming Bunch stamp set.

I started off my card by stamping the florals in the Blooming Bunch stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink on some Canson XL watercolor cardstock. I then heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder. This will add a nice shiny finish to the florals and will also create a barrier for the water and the pigment, which is quite useful for today’s technique.

The technique itself is very easy: all I did was to sprinkle some Shimmer Powders in the areas where I wanted to add color, and then I generously spritzed those areas with water, using a Distress Sprayer. This activates the powders and moves the pigments around.

For the flowers I used Blue Blitz and a bit of Atlantis Burst. For the leaves I used Green Parade and Lemon Yellow.
Once the panel was completely dry I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to add some shading and definition to the image. I then fussy cut it with my scissors.

I also prepared two background panels using the same techinque and Canson XL watercolor cardstock.
For the base one I used the Darling Ribbon and Frames Dies to obtain an A2 sized rectangle and added color with Violet Brocade and Stormy Cloud Shimmer Powders.
For the rounded rectangle I used the Dotted Patterns Set 3 Dies and Shimmer Powders in Pink Sherbet and Solar Flare.

For the sentiment I used the scripty love die in the coordinating dies to the Spring Bouquet stamp set by Studio Katia. I die cut some black cardstock and added some glossy accents for a dimensional detail.
