Tim Holtz Flower Garden & Stampendous Sketchy Blooms

I’ve been on a watercolor kick lately (well, okay, all the time!) and just love creating cards like these with rich, vibrant colors and deep, “moody” backgrounds!  The card above features beautifully detailed Tim Holtz Flower Garden stamps which I heat-embossed in white onto Bristol Smooth card stock.  I then used my Zig markers to color, drying between layers.  This dark blue background really sets off the blossoms, doesn’t it?  I added spatters of black and white paint.  As usual!  🙂

My husband recently bought me a new Cuttlebug as mine finally bit the dust after 18 years of hard use!!  The new one came with this awesome die which I cut three times from the backside of a watercolor pad cover!  How’s that for recycling!  I then glued the three layers together but need to work on getting the layers perfectly aligned!!  🙂  Anyway, I love how this card came out!

I really enjoyed coloring the flowers on this card which used Stampendous’ Sketchy Blooms; I stamped and embossed the image into both corners then colored with Zigs.  I decided to do the background in black to really make those bright flowers pop!  Spatters of water droplets and white paint for extra detail!

I bought this sweet little die at AC Moore recently; it’s a great size for adding to cards without taking up too much space!  I adhered it to a scrap of aqua then mounted it with a bit of foam tape.

  1. The top one looks blue, but the bottom looks black. Love it. Now see, I would look at that stamp set and say, “I’m not sure I can make that into a pretty card” so I would probably not be tempted to buy that stamp. And THEN, I see what you do with it and I think, “I must get that stamp!”. But, I am going to restrain myself this once. 🙂
