A little something Just for you.


Using up the  Kuretake watercoloured Altenew flowers that I had painted previously on the cheap watercolour paper (I actually went through all my pre prepared stamped and printed images on the cheap paper and threw them all out. So much work put into making them all up previously that I had put them all in a pile then was having second thoughts....... pondering..... then I got out my paints and started just playing around and NO they all went into the recycle bin). Clean start on good quality paper.


On this panel I have painted one flower and ended up trimming nearly the whole of the small one up in the corner but I think it still works ok. Don't you just love the richness of the Kuretake paints.
I used the stitched die rectangle that cuts out and leaves stitches on the cut out piece and the negative.


I then cut again with the pink cardstock. placed a small piece of cardstock on the inside that covers the hole left by the removal of the die cut piece and gives an area to attach the watercoloured piece to on the card so now it is an inlaid die cut.

Finished it all off with the lovely stamped sentiment and a few smooth pink gems.










thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

  8. this is such a beautiful card aileen! the floral image is so pretty, lovely in pink and beautifully coloured too! sometimes we learn the hard way that you get what you pay for and good watercolour paper is worth paying for. :)

  9. Oh WOW!! Aileen, gorgeous card, that image from Altenew is so beautiful and it lends itself to be colored in all shades of the rainbow. I love the way you placed this flower and the other one peeking out from the corner works out perfectly for this design.
    I MUST GET ME A SET OF THIS STITCHED DIES!!!!! there is something about the stitched detail that make your panels look so perfectly finished.
    Getting good quality water color paper is a must so your lovely work can shine through, I use Canson 140lb. water color paper for all my cards, it can take a lot of water and it doesn't warp.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Hugs,

  14. I think having the bloom coming just onto the edge is very cool- definitely adds a whole other level to a beautiful card. Thanks for sharing with us at AAA cards!
