Hi there everyone! Have you recovered from the amazing Ellen Hutson Spring release blog hop? I know, it is quite amazing wasn’t it… All those gorgeous projects….. Today I’m back with another card from the new line, this time using the Mondo Magnolia stamp set and coordinating die cut. The die is unique because she has created 3 die options for this image. You can just cut the outline of the Magnolia, or you can cut the three layers, which is what I did here!
The flower was colored with a new watercolor marker I have discovered, thanks to the Queen Bee Julie Ebersole herself! The Zig Clean Real Brush Markers! They are amazeballs. They are fantastic watercolors in a marker format with a brush tip!!!!!!!! And they come in a billion different colors. Well, not a billion, but a lot! 🙂 I’ll have a video up watercoloring with these babies soon…
I stamped the flower with Versafine Onyx black ink. Since it’s a pigment ink, it stays wet longer so I was able to sprinkle some clear embossing powder over the top and heat set it. I like to heat set my images when I watercolor so the outlines of the images stay crisp and black! The sentiment is from the Amazing Women stamp set, also from the new release. The font and sentiments are just gorgeous.
Since my project today has a gorgeous flower on it, I thought I’d tell you about a flower company I use that is just awesome! It’s called The Bouqs Co… They are volcano fresh flowers, which means they are cut right from the side of the volcano. That alone sounds cool… I have ordered from them many times and every time my flowers are gorgeous and last for many weeks!!! It’s just a $40 flat rate. That’s right. NO hidden costs or add ons for stupid teddy bears or chocolates…. And that $40 includes shipping. I just ordered some flowers for my Mom for Mother’s Day so I thought you all might like to know about this company to. If you ever do order flowers, if you use this link you will receive a FREE Bouq with your first purchase! FREE BOUQ LINK! – These are the flowers I ordered my mom.
As always, the supplies I used in today’s card are linked below to a few different sources:
