Hello, good to see you! I hope you are having a great week. Today’s card features a beautiful pink champagne embossing powder from Brutus Monroe. I thought this soft colour would look beautiful with a floral stamp and even more beautiful with a watercolour image. So, why not combine the two! These flowers are from Altenew’s Cherished Memories stamp set and the two flowers are gorgeous. I am trying to always improve my colouring and with this card, I tried to focus on adding cast shadows around the petals. However, I could still improve with the highlights of the petals. Practice, practice, and practice I guess!

Pink champagne embossing powder card process overview
Stamp in clear embossing ink the flowers and leaves from Altenew Cherished Memories stamp set onto hotpress watercolour card. Heat set these in Brutus Monroe Pink Champagne embossing powder and fussy cut these out.
Using watercolours, colour in the image. Remeber to add cast shadows around the petals. Cast shadows help to give depth to your image – these are the areas where one petal overlaps another. You need to add a dark shade onto the petal underneath around the edge of petal on top that overlaps.
Add fine black paint splatter to a white card panel and a strip of striped patterned paper to the front. This paper was excess from another project where I used the Altenew Pinstripe background stamp. Foam mount the flowers onto the card and directly glue the leaves onto the panel to give added variation in dimension.
Add a sentiment onto a strip of white card and foam mount onto the card. Lastly, add a few iridescent sequins for finishing touches.
