Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
I’m so excited and honoured to be a part of the Tonic Studios Garden Party Release Blog Hop! It is a very first monthly stamp set release of Tonic Studios and all their new sets are truly amazing – especially flowers!! If you arrived here from Bibi Cameron’s blog you are on the right track!
For my cards today, I am focusing on the Peony Bloom Stamp Set. It is my most favourite set among entire release products. :D
For my first card, I made no-line watercolour peony card with some Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens.
I stamped peonies and leaves from the Peony Bloom set on watercolour paper using light coloured dye ink, and then coloured them with Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens & water brush. I coloured a part of each petal with aqua flow pen first, and then fill the empty space using water brush. These watercolour pens are really fantastic!! The colours are so vibrant and they blend well with water. I love it so much!!
(Petals) Flamingo Pink & Apple Red / Wild Phlox & French Wine
(Leaves & bough) Sliced Kiwi, Aqua Splash, Indigo Batik, Caramel Pecan
Once the watercoloured images were dry, I fussy cut them out, and then adhered them on the card front using foam tape.
For the sentiment, I used the Botanical Burst Stamp Set – it’s also a new set and has many adorable flowers and sentiments.
Before I move to my second card, I highly recommend the Midas Touch Aqua Shimmer Pen. Before using it, I just thought it was a gold shimmer pen but I was wrong. This pen has clear + shiny gold shimmer colours – I mean not too much gold colour. It made my watercolour flowers more shiny and pretty. I love, love, love it so much!!
For my second card with the Peony Bloom set, I used the Novu Shimmer Powders.
I randomly stamped flowers & leaves on watercolour paper panel using Nuvo Black Shadow hybrid ink. Next, I applied clean water all over the stamped panel using spray bottle, and then I sprinkled some of the shimmer powders in Catherine Wheel, lilac waterfall, Green Parade, and Falling Leaves onto the wet stamped panel. Once I applied powders, I brushed them with a wet paint brush.
It looks quite messy but artsy, isn’t it? :D
