Stampendous Coneflower Cling Set

What a delight it was to stamp out Coneflower given to me by Stampendous!!  I couldn’t wait to ink it up and play!  For this card I began by heat-embossing the lower flowers in white onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, then masking in order to stamp the one on top.  I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors and added layers and layers of color, using my water brush to soften and blend.  I added the brown around the image, then stamped very lightly down the right side with an older Stampin Up text stamp, and finally, added the Sunshine sentiment from the set on top of that.  As always, I like to spatter paint for more texture and interest.  To keep it simple, I adhered the panel onto a white base card.

When I begin a card, I choose colors that are opposites on the color wheel as they have the most visual impact and appeal.  Blue and orange are such colors and I really enjoyed painting this!   I used the same older Stampin Up text stamp and another sentiment from the Coneflower Cling set to complete this fairly simple, yet striking card!  Note the white border around this one: I taped the watercolor paper to my Epicurean cutting board with painters tape to keep it from warping as I painted and to make that border.  More spatters complete this card!  I hope you like it!  🙂
