Altenew watercolor wonders giant hugs card by Rachel Vass

‘Lots of love’ loose watercolour flowers


Morning everyone

I have had the watercolor wonders stamp set by Altenew for a while but not got round to using it much. Definite mistake on my part, I love it. Today’s card uses a loose watercolour technique.   I smooshed distress inks onto the stamps, lightly spritzed with water and then stamped onto my Bockingford 300gsm watercolour card stock.   I then used a damp paint brush to smooth out the colour and adding drops of distressing to further highlight some areas.  Once dry I added the sentiment with 3-D foam tape,  twine, sequins and some clear wink of Stella.  My panel is mounted with 3-D foam tape onto a uk A6side folding cardbase.
