Wonderful Friend with Concord & 9th Stamps

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed that I have been trying to make cards after every “coloring day” for The 30 Day Challenge. Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten to make a card with Day 6 yet. But I did make one with my Day 7 Coloring.

I started with an A2 sized piece of Canson XL Watercolor paper. I stamped the large image from Concord & 9th Wonderful Florals stamp set with Simon Says Stamp (SSS) embossing ink, black embossing powder and heat set (I can’t say black embossing powder is my favorite…. It gets everywhere! You could do the same with a black pigment ink and clear embossing powder). Using my Zig Markers and a water pen, I water colored the image. Once dry, I cut the panel using SSS Notebook Edges die.

I also added some gems, that I had in my stash, to the centers of the flowers and around the image. I also used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen to add some sparkle to the letters/Wonderful… unfortunately it is very hard to photograph, but it is very shimmery in real life!

For a little interest on the background of the card, I stamped lines using Concord & 9th Happy Plaid in SSS black ink on a white A2 sized card base. I also stamped the small flower from the “Wonderful Florals” in SSS Beige Ink. I adhered some white fun foam to the back of the watercolor panel with SSS Tacky Glue and then added it to the card base.

I finished the inside of the card by adding the sentiment in black ink and the largest flower and leaves with Distress Oxide in Abandoned Coral and Lucky Clover.

I apologize for my images not always being consistent. I am trying to work with my lighting and I am looking into a new set up. Thanks for being so patient with me! I hope you enjoyed this bright card. Happy Crafting!
