It is STAMPTEMBER at Simon Says Stamp and for the Monday challenge the theme is Stamping !
Since it is Anything goes at the SSS Wednesday Challenge I'm entering this there as well!!!
I heatembossed the etched floral bg from MFT with brown distress embossingpowder on watercolorpaper. I use Canson Montval 200gms which is good but very reasonably priced. I wouldn't use it for watercolor paintings, but for cardmaking it is perfect!
I then colored the flowers using a watercolor technique called layeringing which is when you first paint the flower one color and let it dry before adding another layer of the same color which creates a darker version of the same color. You then do this as many times as you need to get the dimension on the flower as you want.
I let it dry completely before I trimmed the panel. I then adhered it to a slightly larger creamcolored panel before attaching it to the cardbase with foam adhesive.
Have a great day, hugs, Karin
