Watercolor Wings from Stampin’ Up!

Clean & Simple Thank you card using Watercolor Wings from Stampin’ Up!

Hey there, I’m back today with a card I came up with by playing around with Watercolor Wings from Stampin’ Up!. This was one of the first stamp sets I saw when the annual catalogue first came out and it’s been hugely popular. All the ideas I had, to showcase the set, seemed to be covered immediately by other demonstrators around the world.  I kind of parked using it waiting for inspiration to hit.

I had the chance yesterday to have a little play and was messing around with various watercolour methods, markers, reinkers, ink pads and I came up with this card. Personally I love it (well I would wouldn’t I? 🙂 ).

I added more ink from the lid of the ink pad to make the colour more vibrant and then splattered ink across the paper.

Once it was dry I overstamped the butterfly with the detailed stamp in Versamark and heat embossed using Iridescent Ice embossing powder to give it a sparkle.

I finished by stamping the sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes Card kit and adding some Real Red sequins.
