Avery Elle … Spring Bouquet

Hello Avery Elle fans!   I’m SO EXCITED to be up on the Avery Elle Blog today sharing a couple of cards I’ve created using the Spring Bouquet clear stamps and dies.  I know I’m probably biased because it’s a set I designed but I LOVE playing with it!  It particularly lends itself (as do all our other floral sets) to our brand new Liquid Watercolours.  These come in 10 delicious colours and here I’ve used a few of my favourites (Cherry, Fizz and Mimosa).

Both cards use the same main supplies and are just variations of each other.  Both start off as blank 41/4″ x 51/2″ white cards with Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks (on the pink version) and Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink blended on the orange one.

I used the brand new Polka Plate die but added a twist by using two of the circle dies from the Burst Elle-ments to die cut an aperture and circle frame.  I pieced the “frame” which I cut from another piece of white card into the negative space and adhered the die cut to the card front.

I stamped all the flower elements onto water colour cardstock using Versamark ink then heat embossed them using Avery Elle fine white embossing powder.  My preferred method for watercolouring heat embossed images is to cover the area with clean water to saturate the paper then pick up the colour and drop it onto the wetted paper.  This allows the paint to flow freely and naturally but you can also fiddle with it to get it looking exactly how you want it.   For the pink lilies I used Cherry Liquid Watercolour and for the orange lilies I used a combination of Mimosa, Fizz and Cherry.  They mix beautifully and a tiny amount really does go a long way.
