Water Colour Resist featuring Alex Syberia Design’s Cindy Lou’s Poppies

Hello fellow card makers! Today's card features Alex Syberia Designs' Cindy-Lou's Poppies Stamp Set. This card is done up in water colour with a resist technique ... super easy with a pretty result.

  • Two panels of Canson XL watercolour paper were cut; A2 sized for the panel and a smaller one for the die cut sentiment.

  • The A2 sized panel was randomly stamped with the three poppy images using Versamark ink. They were embossed in white.

  • The entire panel was wetted with clean water on the front and back which allows the panel to lay and dry flat on the surface.

  • A colour wash of red, orange and yellow using Sennelier paints was applied. The panel was left to dry.

  • The poppies were given an additional layer of colour on the dry panel.

  • The panel was cut with a stitched rectangle die and adhered to an A2 sized, top folding card base.

  • The small panel of water colour paper was colour washed with the colours used on the panel.

  • When completely dry, it was die cut with script 'thanks' from the Large Thanks Die . The shadow die from this set was used to cut both white card stock and sheet foam. The sentiment was stacked and adhered to the card.

  • The sentiment strip is from Expressing Gratitude Sentiments Stamp Set. This is an AWESOME stamp that has a coordinating die. Seventeen ... yes, seventeen! ... sentiments are stamped at once. I used black Versafine ink. The sentiments are cut with die ... again, all at once!

  • The sentiment was mounted on foam before being adhered to the card.

  • The card was embellished with confetti finished off with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew.
