Hello and welcome!
I’m so happy you’ve joined me today and even more excited to be on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog sharing a one layer watercolor birthday card entirely made using only one stamp set.
In fact, the beautiful flowers on this project come as a cluster with beautiful Roses stamp set. To start, I prepared a mask by stamping roses on a piece of masking paper and fussy cutting with my sharp small scissors right against the stamp lines. Next I trimmed a rectangle large enough to cover an extended A2 size card base (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) from Strathmore Bristol paper. I stamped the roses in the corner first using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and my MISTI tool, then I applied the mask on top to protect the image and added more flowers towards the bottom and left edges of my background. At this point I also added a simply stamped sentiment that comes from the same Roses stamp set.
I colored the amazing flowers with water based Tombow markers, playing with cool pinks (markers n.703 and n.725) and warmer shades (markers n.723 and n.743). The leaves were filled with yellowish green tones, using markers n.076 and n.133. I wanted to keep the main focus on the roses and coloring and so, as a finish touch, I added only some tiny colorful splotches and a few clear iridescent sequins.
That’s all for today! Hope you like this sweet card! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
