Good morning! Emily Midgett here with you today. Today will be my last post on the Honey Bee Stamps blog for a little while… in a little over two weeks, I will be the proud momma of my second set of twins! I decided to take the summer off, with the hopes that my new little guys will get on a good schedule, allowing me to get back to some blogging in the fall. Since this is my last post for awhile, I wanted to do some of my favorite things: watercolored flowers, tone-on-tone die cut backgrounds, and super saturated ink blending. Let’s get started with all of the details!
I began by heat embossing the beautiful blooms from the Cosmos stamp set onto some watercolor paper using gold embossing powder. I then watercolored the images using Karin Brush Markers Pro in shades of Turquoise, Red Lilac, and Violet Blue, and die cut them using the coordinating Honey Cuts.
Next, I used Blender Brushes to blend some deep lilac and shocking pink inks onto two panels of white cardstock, one of which I die cut using the Watercolor Lines Cover Plate. I adhered the cover plate die cut to the other blended panel using foam adhesive to help enhance the texture and dimension, creating a subtle, textured, tone-on-tone background for my vivid watercolored flowers. I adhered the flowers to the card front; I love how it looks like they’re peeking out from different levels of the Watercolor Lines Cover Plate die cut! The final step was to add the greeting, which I created in stark black and gold using the Friendship Stamps and Honey Cuts.
Well, that’s all for my post today! The world is so crazy right now… I hope you’re getting to enjoy some crafting to take away some of the stress of this whole virus situation! Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a marvelous weekend.
