Working with great paper makes everything so much more fun. Colored embossed paper, in such pretty colors? Of course, why not!
The project began with the new heavy weight whisper white cardstock, I love having such a heavy base, and gathered layers of stamping and more color. The image and sentiment come from the same set, which is delicious by the way, and were stamped in black stazon. I knew I would be water coloring, so that is the perfect ink to work with.
I blended watermelon wonder with a touch of crumb cake and it turned out so nice. I chose crumb cake because I was using linen thread and wanted to tie in the colors. A large ribbon wasn’t going to work here. It took too much focus away from the flower and sentiment.
I think I would add a mat or two behind the flower next time, but left it alone for now. It turned out nice, just right. I do love a simple water color.
Have a creative day!
