Hi everyone! It’s Laura here and today I am back with a post and a video showing how to create a floral birthday card! Today I decided to experiment with the no-line watercolor technique, and for my focal image I chose the gorgeous florals in the Studio Katia Kind Bouquet stamp set.
I started by stamping the image in the Kind Bouquet stamp set over some watercolor cardstock, using some very light ink. I then painted the flowers with my Gansai Tambi Watercolors and, once the painting was done, I die cut them with the coordinating dies.
For more details about watercoloring with the no-line technique you can watch the video at the end of this post.
I then created a quick background by applying a light wash of watercolor on some more watercolor cardstock, that I die cut with the Scallop Hearts Cover die. I added some extra detail with the Brush Stroke Waves stencil and Distress Oxide in Antique Linen
For my base layer, I die cut some more watercolor cardstock using the Darling Ribbon and Frames dies and blended Distress Oxides in Aged Mahogany and Tattered Rose on its edges.
As a last step I stamped one of the sentiments in the Blooming Bunch stamp set with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide, and that finished off my card.
