Watercolour Nature Walk Cards

Darkroom Door - Monday, October 22, 2018

Hi there, I'm Heather Telford and I am happy to be sharing some cards featuring the gorgeous new Nature Walk Stamp Set. The detail is amazing and the sentiment tiny and delicate. When I opened these I was definitely a happy stamper. I created my cards in an artsy style, sometimes adding sharp detail images and sometimes using looser watery images. I hope you enjoy my approach.



Instructions: 
• Splatter masking fluid on hot pressed watercolour paper panel. Let dry
• Spritz water generously over panel but it doesn't have to be fully wet.
• Stamp round topped wildflowers from Nature Walk set in bundled sage and iced spruce distress stains across two thirds of panel. Let dry
• Ink stamp with chipped sapphire, seedless preserves and dusty concord and stamped it several times across the panel. Let dry
• Rub off masking fluid.
• Stamp sentiment from Nature Walk in versamark on co-ordinating cardstock. Emboss in white powder. Pop up on watercolour panel
• Attach panel to white card base.
