Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop!




Happy Sunday!   I have a card to share for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge.  






For my card, I wanted to do a watercolor design.  I literally just got the Arteza Real Brush pens in the mail on Saturday.  I never got the Zig ones.  Now that I have tried these real brush pens I totally see what all the fuss is about.  I love these markers!  The colors are so vibrant.  


I started with some Strathmore watercolor paper.  I started with the outline flower image from  Papertrey Inks 2018 Anniversary set Mixed Bouquet I stamped the image using versamark ink and heat set using white detail embossing powder all over the top of my card recreating the huge floral arrangement, but from a different point of view.



Next, I colored all of the flowers and even the background with my Arteza Real Brush pens.  I added some white and black spatters to the card.  I added foam tape to the back of this panel and popped it up onto a stampers select white card stock base.



 I die cut the large sentiment strip from Wine Bottle Tag 2 die and heat embossed the sentiment from Butterfly Blooms stamp set using versamark ink and heat set using white detail embossing powder. I added it to my card with some foam tape.  I trimmed off of the edge.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.  

As always thanks so much for hopping by!

  5. Really great watercoloring! I like how it goes from dark to light from the bottom and just that little bit of black tapped off the brush adds so much.
