Floral Stay Beautiful Card

Hello P&M fans,

Today, I am sharing a card a created using a retiring stamp set called, FLORALS. I love the different layering aspects of this set. This time I decided to do a pretty Spring watercolor card. I embossed the flowers in white and randomly spread out pastel watercolors throughout. I sprayed it generously with water in a fine mister and dabbed (no, not the dance move) it with a paper towel. I also embossed the saying and added a few elements for dimension (flower, colored gauze). One really cool thing I discovered, which to some may be old news, was that the Spectrum Noir sparkle glitter brush pen reacts like water. I used it on the center of the flowers and around the edges, not expecting it to do anything but add sparkle. I was pleasantly surprised when it actually gave a “bleaching” effect. Hope you will have fun trying this technique.

Check out this and other retired sets HERE before they are gone.
