Dare 2B Artzy floral challenge card

Hello crafty friends,

It's time for another challenge at the Dare 2B Artzy blog.  Floral cards are the theme and I used the beautiful Christmas Rose stamp to make this card.  This is versatile enough to get different looks depending on what colors you choose.  I have not used watercolors in awhile so I figured it was time I did that again.



I used Daniel Smith watercolor samples, which are perfect for someone who doesn't use watercolor very often.  I stamped the large rose bouquet onto watercolor cardstock with Versamark ink, then added detailed Wow white embossing powder and heat set.  Then I used a very loose watercolor technique, blending the first of the three colors on the roses, then working on the leaves while the first color dried, then came back with the second color and did some blending.  Then I repeated the process with the third color.  I used one of flower colors to fill in the berries.



Once the watercolor panel dried, I used the coordinating die to cut it out and set aside.  For the card base, I used white cardstock, a pale pink layer of cardstock and cut a piece of white cardstock with the beautiful lattice die to layer on top of the pink.  I trimmed off the edge of the flower bouquet to be flush with the background die, then layered it on top.

I used a vellum band for the sentiment, which I wrapped around the card panel and glued on the back to make sure there was no visible glue on the front of the card.
