Happy Monday everyone!! It’s Shari here with some fun Memory Box dies and a cool background technique.
First, let me admit that I’m loving this color scheme for spring cards… They are my go to colors for flowers and backgrounds. I just can’t help myself! They are complementary which make them pop when put together.
I started out by embossing the Jourdana Collage die from Memory Box onto a panel of watercolor card stock. Then I added a wash of color using Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Peacock Feathers and Broken China Distress inks. These steps gave me a colored textured background for the flower. Once the background was dry, I die cut the panel using the Pinpoint Main Street tag die where I cut two and put them together at the top to create a mini tag shaped card.
About that flower… it’s unique in that it has inner and out parts that you can put together. I watercolored the blossom with Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon and Spiced Marmalade Distress inks. The leaves were painted with Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Distress inks.
I have created a video of the process which you can view below or on our YouTube channel.
