Happy Watercolor Makes Me Happy

January 29, 2014 No Comments

I needed some flowers today and immediately reached for Happy Watercolor. This is definitely one of my favorite sets from the Occasions catalog. The flower is versatile and I love the texture elements in the set.

When I thought about how I wanted to style the flower, I remembered the poppies that grew down one side of my parent’s yard. They were in the lovely deep oranges and reds with the black center. We would occasionally find someone out along the side of the yard trying to dig up a clump so they could have some of these poppies in their yard. I’ve never had any luck growing them at my house. So they’re just a lovely memory.

Happy Watercolor and Sweet Sorbet card
This card begins with a Basic Black cardstock base and piece of Sweet Sorbet designer series paper (free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-Bration).  This side of the designer paper has kind of an ikat or bargello design.  After layering on the Pear Pizzazz square, I pulled out Gorgeous Grunge and inked the “skid” marks with Versamark and then heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder.  Notice that the “skid” marks while primarily on the Pear Pizzazz piece were carried to the edge of the Basic Black base.

The Very Vanilla piece was punched at the top with Angled Tag Topper punch and the bottom with Scallop Border punch. The flower image from Happy Watercolor was then stamped in Pear Pizzazz, while the Watercolor image was inked with Pistachio Pudding. The dots were inked with Versamark and then heat embossed with Gold embossing powder.  Then, using some of the Gold Baker’s Twine I made a little tassel at the top of the tag.

I stamped the flower image on both Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe and then cut the flower into several pieces. The pieces were shaped using my bone folder and then layered to give the flower the appearance of being full. In the center, I added some drops of Versamark refill , sprinkled them with Black embossing powder and heat to set. Here’s a close up.

 

“Hello” is from Perfect Pennants and was inked with Versamark and embossed with Black embossing powder on Calypso Coral cardstock and then cut with the Banners Framelits.  Don’t you love the contrast of the black and Calypso Coral? Both the “Hello” sentiment and the tag were layered onto the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

It was nice to think of the fence line full of poppies on this cold, cold day.  They brightened up my day as I hope this card will brighten yours.
