This beautiful stamp is from Colorado Stamp Company and is called Missing You Peony. It is part of their Big and Bold Line of stamps, and I love it.

To start this card I knew I was going to down size the stamp. In doing this I needed to stamp and fussy cut the stamp on photocopy paper, as I would be doing some masking.

I am using Arches 140lb Cold Press watercolour paper for this card. I wanted my card panel to be 4.5 x 4.5 inches and not the 6 x 6 inches it is intended to be. In order to accomplish this I would be using petals from the flower as leaves, keeping them trimmed so one would not really notice that they were not “proper leaves”.

 

I masked off the petals I wanted as leaves and stamped the other petals using Ranger Ink in Vibrant Fuchsia. I then masked off the petals and stamped the leaves using Ranger Ink in Olive. This ensures that the details from the stamp remain and do not wash away when I watercolour.

To watercolour I am using Kuretake Clean Color Brushes in 2 colours only, being the Dark Pink and Olive. To lighten where needed I am watering down the colour.

To mat my piece I added cardstock in the deep pink and olive green colours, then attached it all to a pale green card base. I did this as some cards just do not suit a white base, and this is one of them.

I stamped the sentiment on a piece of the Arches watercolour paper using VersaFine Clair Ink in Glorious and attached it to the base using foam squares. I then added a few Nuvo Glitter drops around the card to finish.
