Thinking Of You

The Greetery Wildflower Mix + Video

I recently made a few cards using watercolors as my medium. It’s been awhile since I’ve done that, so I thought it would be fun to watercolor a few Wildflowers From The Greetery. I have watercolored them before, and loved the results. There’s no special technique to doing this, just brush paint onto the die-cut flowers, let the flowers dry, and see if you need a second or third coat of paint.

I die-cut 2 panels of Arches cold pressed watercolor paper with the Wildflower Mix dies, then added painters tape to the back of the panel to keep the little flowers and stems in place. I used Mission Gold watercolors to color the flowers. These paints are super vibrant, and have very stable lightfast. (The colors won’t fade.) I did do two layers of paint on the flowers, drying the panel with my heat tool before adding the second layer.

Once all of the pieces were dry, I unattached them from the tape, and glued them together. There is no wrong or right way to glue the flowers together, I just glued what I thought looked good. Once all of the flowers were done, I moved onto the card panel.

I trimmed 4 white panels to 3.75×5 inches, and used the small Window Dressing die to die-cut windows in the middle of the panels. I even turned the die 90 degrees for diamond windows. I stamped Thank You from Hoop Wreath stamp set, then attached the panels to card bases with foam adhesive. I made small arrangements of flowers for the window, and attached them with thin foam squares a few drops of glue.

I am so happy with how vibrant the flowers turned out against the white-on-white background. I hope I was able to share a few tips and ideas with you today. Thanks so much for stopping by!

I made one using the small dragonfly and fern from the curio collection. There was such a peaceful feel to the card. Serene in color and design. Thank you so much for showing this collection again along with a video. These are truly my favorite!
