Hello and Happy Friday! Hope you all had a good week. It's that time of the week again for another Crazy Crafters team project highlights. I thought I would share a quick and easy card and show you this gorgeous stamp set called, "You've Got This" by Stampin' Up! I was drawn by the beautiful drawing of the flower and the uplifting sentiments. As an outlined illustration, I have used watercolouring for the flowers and used white heat embossing to keep the colours contained. I just love using this technique for this kind of images time and time again and the results always look great. I have used watercolour paper and the white heat embossed just blends so well. I have also extended the stem of the flower by manually drawing it using a Versamark pen. It's very handy to have as you can do small touches or draw with it. To add contrast and interest I have cut along the right hand side so that part of the flower/petal hangs out and mounted this onto crumb cake cardstock, this just sets off the front panel.
Inside the card, I have applied the same technique with the flower and did something a little different and watercoloured on normal Whisper White cardstock. The trick is to use as little water as possible and have a light touch so you don't rubbed the paper fibres. Best to do it on the bottom corner to so the warping is not as noticeable, though it wasn't much at all as I didn't use much water. I will be making a few more cards with this great stamp set and applying different techniques so stay tuned. If you are interested in this stamp it's available to order on my online store if you click on Shop With me. Remember to use the Host code to receive a small gift from me.
