As I was preparing for my last class, I found these gorgeous Water colour cards using the Wreath builder dies by Gail Ellis of Blue Rose Paper Treasures. Gail creates absolutely stunning cards and I just had to case a couple of these for my class. I did use the same colour combo that she did, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay and Magenta Madness. The ladies really enjoyed getting inky!
I had a few kits left over so I decided to play with the colours. I still had a piece of Magenta Madness cardstock as part of the card, so I kept that as part of the watercolouring. I also added Mango Meloday and Poppy Parade. I had 4 pieces of water colour paper to play with so I went crazy!!
Don’t they look “interesting”! I said to my class ladies that it doesn’t matter how strange it looks now, it’s going to look stunning cut out!.
Firstly, I used the Tasteful Textile embossing folder on the white background piece. This is such a great folder to add a subtle element of texture.
I cut out 2 wreaths using the Wreath Builder dies from the watercolour paper for each card and a few flowers in Whisper White. The sentiment is stamped in Mango Melody and cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.
Don’t they look amazing!! I’m so happy with how they turned out.
My assistant, Shadow, helped me through the process. As you can see, he was very helpful!!
I hope you give watercolouring a try, it’s so much fun!! (warning: you might get a bit inky on your hands!!)
