Hello everyone and happy Thursday! Lydia here with you and I'm so happy you stopped by.
Today I have a watercolour and gold creation to share.
When I saw the cute little whimsy flowers in My Favorite Things 'Pretty Posies' set I knew I had to have it!
I started with a piece of watercolour card and stamped and embossed the flowers and leaves in white. I had the floral images more concentrated at the top and fewer 'floating' down.
Once the embossing was cool I added a wash over and around the flowers using pinks and orange- I kept this quite light as I wanted the flowers to stand out more. When the wash was dry I added more of the same colours to the flowers and I just love the look this gives.
I then waited for it to dry before adding drops of 2 way glue around the flowers, I waited for this to go clear before adding some foil on top- yay... gold foil studs! For some added gold to the background I added some gold splatters.
For some added detail I used the stitched line from Mama Elephant 'Fine Trimmings' around the edges of the piece of watercolour card.
For the sentiment I used Concord & 9th 'Beautiful You' die set, I cut the 'beautiful' out of gold card, and it looks amazing. I finished the sentiment off using a 'you are' embossed in gold on a strip of vellum from Altenew 'Thinking Of You'.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hugs Lydia x
