Hi, today’s cards are another from my CASE the Catalogue series. The two cards have been created using the Petal Passion Suite of products. The suite features some really lovely, and beautifully coordinated products. I hope you are loving them as much as I am.
For today’s cards, the actual designs are exactly the same as featured in the catalogue. Where the difference comes in is with the paper I used for the middle panel. I wanted to experiment with painting with inks, using my Aqua Painters, on Watercolour Paper and the Shimmery White Cardstock. I wanted to see how easy it was to paint on each surface, how vibrant the colours were when they dried and whether or not the Shimmery White Cardstock would pill.
The first card features the Watercolour Paper. It stamped up beautifully and then used a combination of Pink Pirouette ink with just a touch of Melon Mambo to give a little extra depth, to paint the flowers. The leaves were painted using Old Olive ink. The background was a wash of Pool Party Ink.
Whilst the Watercolour Paper is beautiful to paint on, I thought the Old Olive ink I had selected made the image look a little flat. I added some Wink of Stella, and some Rhinestones, to give the panel a little lift.
Here’s the card…
For the next card, I used the Shimmery White Cardstock as my base. It handled the water really well. I used the same colours of ink for the background and the flower but changed my leaves to be painted with Lemon Lime Twist. I think it really gave the card a little lift.
Here’s the card…
It was fun to experiment with the two different papers and interesting to see the final look. I love water colouring and can’t wait to do more in the future. Do you like to watercolour too?
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
