We begin with two beautiful cards by our talented designer Leah! She creates the most beautiful watercolor cards. Here’s Leah with her cards!

“Hi stamping friends! Today we are showing off floral cards which are my most favorite kind to make. I made a couple different styles to show you today. My first one is more shabby and romantic and uses watercoloring on the floral image.

I used the beautiful new Tulip Bouquet set and watercolored it using my Distress Ink pads. I don’t have the markers but pressing some ink directly from the ink pad onto an acrylic block and picking it up with a paint brush worked really well. I like the option of more color choices using ink pads I already have. I use a #4 round Winsor and Newton paint bush. After I was done watercoloring and it was dry I trimmed out the image and mounted it on foam tape onto the layered die cuts using Fancy Labels 2 and Fancy Labels 3.

My paper is from the Vintage Floral paper pad and the Spring Lilacs paper pad. I added one of the sentiments from the same set onto a fancy tag and added a couple of pearls and a bit of twine.

My second card is more CAS and I decided to use my Prismacolor pencils which were my first coloring medium for the lovely lilies from the new FOTM: Easter Lilies. I have found that using some similar techniques I’ve learned with Copics and watercolor transfers well to the pencils as well. Leaving white space to act as the highlights and laying down you lightest color first and slowly building the darker color over that and then going back over with the lighter color pencil will really blend and soften out the pencil. I like the effect much better than using gamsol or mineral oil to blend.

The butterfly is from the new Butterflies set. I love how perfectly this one pairs with many of the Inspired By Stamping floral images. I hope you enjoyed my two floral cards and will be inspired to try different coloring mediums on all the lovely floral images you have! Have a wonderful day.

    Your cards are so beautiful. Your watercoloring is perfection. I love all the colors you used and the pretty bouquets are awesome. Thanks so much for sharing your tips with us.

    I love colouring with pencils, cheaper than markers and more controllable than watercolours, easy to transport… they’re the best!
    All these beautiful cards are perfect with Mother’s day cards in mind!
