Quick Flower Garden

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs, Flower Garden aSo I needed a quick card for a gardener friend of mine.  The key work here was quick.  I needed something fast, but didn’t want to lose the beauty of a floral garden card.  So I pulled out Joset’s Color my Flowers stamp set and some watercolor paints.

IMG_6997Step One:  Stamp out the floral images onto some Watercolor paper using watercolor friendly ink.

IMG_6998Step Two:  Watercolor the images.  I used my metallic watercolor paints for this project.

IMG_6999Step Three:  Using the coordinating Color My Flowers die set, die cut the images.

IMG_7021Step Five:  Add the die cut flowers and leaves onto the card overlapping each other.
