Today I'm participating in the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop. Yeah! Paulina's hops are awesome--great themes, lots of gorgeous cards, tons of prizes. :) The theme this time is watercoloring. Easy, right? The hop will be officially starting tomorrow (Friday) morning at 6am PST.
To kick things off, I'm sharing a watercolored card:
I started by die-cutting the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duo Die 2 frame out of smooth bristol. Love that die! It's great for so many projects. Next, I die-cut the Flowers and Leaves using my Cameo. The black die-cut is a little atypical me, but I wanted something bold and, well, different. :)
I lightly traced the outline of the die-cut on the Stitched Duo Die frame so I knew which colors to use. For the watercoloring, I used several spray mists and intentionally went way over my sketched borders for an artsy look.
The sentiment is from the Sending and Wishing set from SSS. I also added a few of the new Pretty Pink Posh iridescent sequins (Strawberry Burst and Sunshine Glow).
For the background, I embossed the cardstock using the stitched circles from the Stitched Duo Die 2. Here's a close-up:
