Winnie & Walter Leading Lady Take One + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy weekend!
I’m SO excited (and so honoured) to be May’s Leading Lady with Winnie & Walter! Yay, May is one of my favourite months!!

Today I will be sharing with you my watercolor floral background with the In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora & Renee’s Leaves stamp sets.

I started by heat embossing outlined flowers and leaves from two flower stamp sets (In Bloom: Elsa’s Flora & Renee’s Leaves) on watercolor paper in white. I stamped images using Versamark embossing ink, and then heat embossed with white embossing powder.
I then watercolored the stamped background with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor and a wet flat brush. I applied clean water on the panel first, and then added warm colours. I used (dark to light) No.36 Wine Red, No.32 Red, No.33 Orange, No.43 Mid Yellow.
For the image on the watercoloured panel, I decided not to color. I just stamped an adorable baby elephant from the Welcome to the Family set in black ink, and then die cut it with the Welcome to the Family Cutaways. For the sentiment, I heat embossed “Sending big hugs” from the Big Hugs set on black card stock in white, and then trimmed it out with the Sketchy Thoughts Cutaways.
Once the watercolored panel was completely dry, I trimmed it out with the larger rectangle panel die in the Essentials: Lana Cutaways. Finally, I mounted all elements as shown to top-folded white card base using foam tape.

Shay has generously donated a $30 gift card for me to give away here! To be in with a chance of winning, just leave a comment on my Winnie & Walter Leading Lady posts (every Saturday in May). I’ll announce the winner at the end of the month! :)

Thank you so much for stopping by. Happy crafting!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
