This beautiful image is from Gina K. Designs called Hugs and Wildflowers and I have watercoloured using my Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens.

With using the pens you do not have to spritz before stamping, just colour the image and stamp. I am using watercolour paper from Fabriano for my card, which makes it easy to pull the colour from the stamped image out into the card.

I also did the splatters with the pens, then stamped and coloured the little bird from Picket Fence Studios called Chirp Chirp.

Hello Crafters, Kia with you today.

I decided I would do a spotlight card for today’s post and settled on this image from Picket Fence Studios called Wild Rose.

First up I did the Color Burst background using cold press watercolour paper to use for my framing and bird. I used Ultramarine Blue, Pthalo Blue and Chartreuse, then dried the piece.

To make my frame I used my Elegant Stitching Die for the detail and a Spellbinder die to cut the inside part away.

Using Gina K. Designs Wisper White card stock I stamped the image with VersaFine Claire Ink in Nocturne then coloured the highlighted flowers with Copics. I attached the frames using fun foam.

I stamped the little bird on some of the left over Color Burst piece and die cut attaching to the frame on the bottom using glue and a piece of fun foam under his body.

To finish I stamped the sentiment along the bottom of the card using Archival Ink in Paradise Teal and doing several stampings to get the deeper colour.

I am using one of my favourite stamps, Picket Fence Dandelion Wishes. There are many uses for this set, and I also very much like the sentiments.

I first stamped and heat embossed the Dandelion’s using white embossing powder from Hero Arts. I wanted to know the position of the flowers when doing my background in order to get the colour where I wanted it.

I did a smooshing technique, using a light touch in order to keep the inks on the lighter side, and I used the inks sparingly. It is easier to add more ink than to take it away. I also wanted to maintain some white space, so I am liking the way my background turned out. I also splattered some acrylic paint on it for added interest.

Once everything was dry I attached fun foam to the back of my panel using Be Creative tape and attached it to my Blue Bazzill card stock. I then stamped the sentiment using Ranger Archival Ink in Manganese Blue. For further interest I die cut the frame using my Antique Frame from Penny Black, keeping the left over card stock for use inside the card. I again stamped the sentiment with the Manganese Blue ink to cover the frame portion.

I have done a video showing my process for this card, and following the video I have provided affiliate links for the products that I have used. I hope you have enjoyed this card, and thank you for visiting us here at Scrap’n Stamp.
