Hello everyone! Happy to see you here! Today is a really warm and sunny day and really reminds me of spring. So I pulled out my flower stamps and here we go!


For colouring my card I was inspired by the instructors from the Creative Watercolor Media class over at the Altenew Academy and tried to use something besides classic watercolours. So I gave my crisp dye re-inkers a go since it’s a water-based medium.

First, I stamped all the images from my favorite Perfectly Perfect stamp set onto Arches cold pressed watercolour paper with Versafine ink and then started watercolouring. The re-inkers I used are:

Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart and Purple Wine (all from the Rose Petal Re-inker set)

Parrot and Moss (from the Tropical Forest Re-inker set)

A bit of Autumn Blaze and for the background I used Lagoon and Desert Night.

I added lots of splattering to the background before I foam mount all the flowers and leaves on top.

For the sentiment I white heat embossed it on a piece of Dark Gray cardstock before trimming it to a skinny strip and adhere it with more foam tape on top of my cluster. The sentiment comes from another favorite, the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set.

As a final touch I adhered a few matching sequins here and there and foam mounted the whole panel onto an A2 card base made out of Pale Gray cardstock.

Thank you so much for dropping by today! I hope you have a really creative and happy day and I’ll see you soon!
