Life is Beautiful Floral Card

Hi everyone, Taheerah here wishing you a happy Thursday!

I'm not a huge fan of floral stamps as they seem to have been done to death everywhere. However, find a different way to use them and things suddenly become more interesting for me!

I decided to pull out the Altenew Floral Fantasy stamp set and have a play with a watercolour-look technique:

Beautiful right? I love the soft subtle look of the background, with just the quietest whisper of florals!

I inked up the second layer of the flowers and leaves, stamped them off once, then stamped on my card. I then spritzed a *lot* of water onto my card and dabbed off the excess ink with a tissue. I repeated this a few times until the leaves and flowers were really soft in appearance, and the colour had bled out a little too.

I opted from a sentiment from the Altenew More Than Words stamp set. It fit the look of this card perfectly!

I'd love to hear what you think of this card. Is there someone you know who'd love to receive it? Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is so pretty! I love the delicate, feminine look and the sentiment is perfect too.
