Amazing Silhouettes Card in Watercolor

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing the last of the 3 images in the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set. I’m using a touch of watercoloring with this one. I began by stamping the leaf image on to one of the watercolor patterns in the Dainty Flowers Designer papers in Old Olive. Yes, I stamped my image onto designer paper.

I added water to the middle size Water Painter and I used it to activate the ink and give it a more watercolor look. Then I added a little more ink to the image using the Water Painter giving it more depth of color…..

Once dry, I added a Mossy Meadow mat to it and wrapped the corner with the 3/4″ White Frayed Ribbon and then some of the natural Bakers Twine. These add so much texture to the card and create a framed edge for our foliage.

Using another pattern from the Dainty Flowers I cut into two pieces and used one side to highlight the green and the other to highlight the freesia that is found on the original piece that I stamped on. I layered these three pieces together and mounted them onto my cardfront.

I used Mossy Meadow for my card front and then embossed it with the Stitched Greenery Die. It gives the project some texture and a touch of greenery! You’ll love how the intricate detail dresses up the card perfectly.

No bling on this card because I wanted to keep it more natural. I added the card front to my base in Mossy Meadow … I love layering color on color, it’s such soft and subtle look.

Hope you enjoyed the three different looks / techniques that showcased the Amazing Silhouettes. I have to “Thank” my friend Karen who booked a workshop and asked to see this stamp set. It totally changed my mind … I love it! It’s unique and lends itself to many different techniques.

Thanks for popping in today, I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
