Neat & Tangled March Release, Day 2: No Words

Hello again!

Time to showcase some more goodies from the Neat & Tangled March Release!

Day 2 is for the No Words sentiment stamp set – a staple in every crafter’s stash! Here’s my card:

I created this free-style, watercolour floral image to support the sentiment from the set by simply taking an acrylic block, swiping it with Dylusions ink and stamping it onto a piece of watercolour paper. The blocks that I have are sort of flower shaped so they were perfect for this technique.

I heat set the blooms and then used a sponge dauber to add the black centre detail – very rough and ready, but it did the trick! I also added more detail to the flowers using some ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens and in a flick like motion, drew some veins.

I drew the stems by dragging the end of the applicator from some green Dylusions ink across the design. Again, I heat set the panel and then added a wash of colour behind the flowers so it didn’t look so stark. I also flicked on some inks for a bit of artistic detail.

I heat set the panel one last time, trimmed it down and adhered it to a white card base. I white heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and foam mounted it to the front.

I added a couple of sequins to the design to finish off.
