Today’s projects use the Timeless Tropical Bundle, Label Me Bold and Seriously The Best Stamp Sets.
I started both projects by cutting two pieces of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper cut to 3-1/2″ X 4-1/2″. I taped the pieces to a self-healing mat with some low tack masking tape. I added several drops of the Pineapple Punch Ink Refill to my Silicone Craft Sheet, then using my Aqua Painter added a liberal amount of water to my Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, then picked up some Pineapple Punch Reinker and spread it on my taped paper. I allowed it to dry naturally, however you can use a Heat Tool to set the color in and dry the paper.
I cut two pieces of Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut at 8-1/4″ X 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. I stamped four of the floral images from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set onto a piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock with Poppy Parade Classic Ink. I used the coordinating In The Tropics Dies to cut out my flowers. I used Old Olive and Mossy Meadow Cardstock for the leaves.
Once my inked Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper was dry, I spritzed it with some of my “always ready and available” Stampin’ Spritzer filled with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and 70% Isopropyl Alcohol.
I added some Craft Ink Refill drops to my Silicone Craft Sheet, and some Mossy Meadows Classic Ink Refill too. Using my Aqua Painter I dipped the tip into the Craft Ink drops and tapping on my finger, added some drops all over my flowers and leaves. I washed the tip of my Aqua Painter, then dipped it into the Mossy Meadow Ink Refill drops and again tapped it on my finger to add some drops to my leaves.
Using a Sponge Dauber I dabbed it into my remaining Craft White Reinker drops and smudged a bit on my flowers and leaves.
I used a toothpick to pick up some of the Craft White Reinker drops and added it to the center little stamen. I allowed that to dry, then using a Q-tip I added some Mango Melody Classic Ink over the Craft White Inked stamen to ensure it showed over my Poppy Parade flower image.
I added my flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals to my Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper pieces. I also added the Watercolor pieces to my Thick Whisper White Cardstock base with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used my Multipurpose Liquid Glue to add my leaves around my floral images. I colored some Rhinestone Jewels with my Mango Melody Dark Stampin Blend and sprinkled them onto my project.
I stamped the sentiments with Memento Black Ink on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock, and hand-cut them using my Paper Snips.
