Honey and Gold

I was working on some posts for my blog and found this post as a draft from months ago! Wow! I think it is time for this project to come out and play :) Thankfully this stamp set carried over into the new Annual Catalog!

I actually made this card for a swap I take part in about quarterly, and I made a couple versions of it.

Ok, bear with me here. I am going to try to remember all the details of how I made this card :)
  • Cut a panel of watercolor paper to 3½"x4¾", and a piece of Delightful Dijon to 3½"x5". Stamp the flower cluster in Versamark and heat emboss with Gold embossing powder. 
  • Use an Aqua-painter to color the flowers, dry (air or heat tool). 
  • Go over the leaves and stamens with the Gold Wink of Stella.  
  • Add some watery Delightful Dijon to the background with the Aqua-painter, dry. 
  • Spatter with a more intense Delightful Dijon with the Aqua-painter. 
  • Stitch the watercolor panel tot eh Delightful Dijon mat, then adhere to the Thick Whisper White card base.
This version has much less going on in the background, but there are some dots stamped in the background instead of being spattered on.
