Hello and welcome to Inspired by Stamping November 2016 Inspiration Week! We are just so excited about this week! We are featuring 3 new stamp sets! All of our new products are available now at www.inspiredbystamping.com.
Today we are showcasing our new Garden Roses Stamp Set
Today we begin with a new video tutorial! I am sharing two new techniques in this video. Firstly, we are combining two different watercolor to create a two tone rose. Secondly, I am sharing how to add polychromos pencils to your watercolor project.
I began by cutting out a circle die using Arches Hot Press Watercolor paper and stamping my image using Versamark. I then heat embossed the image using Wow! Fine White Embossing Powder. Two tone watercoloring is so much fun and I hope you took a peek at how to do it in my video tutorial. After the paper dried, I went over my image with Polychromos pencils in the darkest tones of my painting.
I then added some scrap pieces of paper for my background and also stitched around the edges with some white thread. Big Thanks stamp set was used for my sentiment which I used white embossing powder on vellum.
Here’s a picture of the two roses that I colored in my online video tutorial. 🙂
For my second card, I used the same technique as I shared in my video but this time with pink colors. I embossed both the flowers and the mason jar and then colored both with watercolors. This gorgeous sentiment can be found in today’s new stamp. I used white embossing powder on gorgeous black cardstock.
I then added some soft pink rhinestones and also iridescent sequins on my card. And layered my watercolor picture onto baby blue cardstock.
For my last card, I used zig clean brush pens for my coloring onto Canson Watercolor Paper. This was so fun and so simple. For more in-depth video tutorials make sure you check out my free online classroom. I have a great tutorial on Zig Pens.
After coloring my rose, I grabbed my Mini Misti and used the Happy Birthday from this new stamp set. Next I added some rhinestones and sequins to my card. I then added some gold and white twine that will be in our store next year.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s inspiration cards with today’s new stamp set and my video tutorial! I will be back tomorrow with a recap of my favorite cards! See you then.
