Using my Oriental Orchid Stamp Set
I have been on a bit of a watercolor kick lately. My *new to me* Altenew Oriental Orchid stamp and die set was just screaming to be used. I decided to make a set out of the various attempts to get it right.
I started with stamping and embossing with gold the stem and flowers. I didn't do a stellar job of masking, thinking I could get by adjusting as I went. I think these cards are passable, but will probably mask differently next time. After completing all the embossing on watercolor paper, I painted the images using my Mission Gold watercolors. Again, I think I could have used a more subtle technique, but I like the final result.
Some sequins, a watercolor frame cut with my stitched rectangle die and a white embossed sentiment on vellum and this card set is done. I'm linking this card up to the following challenges:
