In the Online Card Classes Color Theory course you learned about hues of color and how adding water to hues changes the intensity of the colors. This card has a much softer feel because of the lighter hues of the primary colors used.
Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flowers 2 has both a large bouquet of flowers along with individual flowers that can be used in creating a card. For this card I stamped the large bouquet onto Acquarello Artistico Extra White 140# Watercolor Paper with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. All of the primary colors were used, along with the secondary color of green, but the hues used were very light because a lot of water was added to each color.
Once the watercolor was dry the bouquet was die cut using the matching die. To add dimension to the card the bouquet was traced onto Darice Sticky Back Foam, fussy cut, and then adhered to the back. A rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock was die cut using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle and ink blended with Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass.
A side folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock. Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back of the blue panel and it was then adhered to the card front. The flower bouquet was placed on the card front to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Gina K. Designs Rose Bouquet, which was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with the same gold embossing powder. The flower bouquet was then adhered to the front of the cardbase with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. As a final embellishment Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Gold Sequins were scattered around the flower bouquet.
