CAS Watercolor Card Challenge July 2019


Hi friends, greetings! My card for this week is for a watercolor Clean and Simple challenge:
Bouquet of Flowers! I really searched through my Stampin' Up! current stamp sets to find various flowers and bits that I could create a watercolor bouquet. I used about 6 different sets for the floral images and they are linked below. For the watercoloring, I used my favorite paper, Fluid 100 and the new Pigment Sprinkles:
These powders are the best! First of all, they are in my favorite colors:
Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape. Who can't resist these delicious colors? You can water them down for a lighter effect or use less water for a very vibrant result. For $23.00 for a set of 6, they will last and last. Combine to make further colors: Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green will give you a brown which is what I used on the stems of the bouquet:
I stamped all the images with Stazon Black Ink to ensure the black would not run with watercolor. All the images were watercolored with various shades of the Pigment Powders, as well as, the background. The stems were cut from Fluid 100 using the Bouquet Bunch Die. There is a few bits of gold - die cut with the same Bouquet Bunch die - the band around the stems and a little floral frond.
The sentiments both inside and out come from the Rare Blessings stamp set and I used Memento Black Ink for that. A simple floral image from the Tea Together Stamp Set finished the inside.
The front panel was cut with the largest Rectangle Stitched Die and the flowers were either glued directly with Tombow Liquid Adhesive or popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. the card base is Sea Foam green which is a beautiful soft pastel green.
Well that's it for today. I hope you enjoyed this card and find some inspiration. Combining sets is fun and a great way to get more use out of your stamps. 

All products used are linked below and will take you directly to my online shop. If you are looking for a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and need a current catalog, I would be pleased to help you. The new Holiday catalog is not too far away! Thanks for sticking to the end.
