Quick post to share a card I’m entering into the Runway Inspired Challenge #48 – Antonio Marras.
Here’s the inspiration photo:
I was super inspired by Tasnim‘s card, though I didn’t feel as brave as her in trying my hand at freestyle watercolouring. Instead, I used a technique Shari Caroll used in this card to do some acrylic block stamping. Super easy to do, and such a cool look…
I smushed various Distress Inks onto an acrylic block, misted heavily with Perfect Pearls water and stamped onto some watercolour paper. Once I was happy, I dried with my heat tool.
I stamped the Hero Arts Blooming Meadow image in Versafine Onyx Black and extended the stems with a black pen towards the bottom of the panel. The sentiment comes from WPlus9’s Damask Doilies set and I stamped onto some black paper with Versamark. I sprinkled with white embossing powder, heat set and cut into three strips. These were foam mounted and wrapped around my watercolour panel.
Finally, I went in with some Diamond stickles on some of the flower centres and adhered a few punched butterflies.
Thanks for looking!
