More Camellia Cards

My obsession with Technique Tuesday’s camellia stamp continues….

This is pretty straightforward stamping, very fast and easy (no fussy cutting!)
The camellia was stamped on white card stock in VersaMark ink, then black embossed. The sentiment (Technique Tuesday Swanky Sentiments) was stamped in black VersaFine. The panel was trimmed, edged with Delicata Golden Glitz ink (Imagine Crafts), layered on black, then on the yellow card front.

On this card, I first did a watercolor wash, using the smooth side of Ranger/Tim Holtz Watercolor Cardstock. (I love the way this holds up to water coloring but is still smooth enough for quality stamping.) I first wet the paper, using my water brush to paint clean water in a swath. I then spread some Ranger Distress Stains (Victorian Velvet, Milled Lavender, Broken China).

When the background was completely dry, I swiped it with my Embossing Buddy powder, then stamped the camellia with VersaMark ink and added white embossing powder. I used the same Distress colors to color in the flower, adding Forest Moss and Shabby Shutters for the leaves.

The sentiment was stamped with VersaFine black ink. The panel was mounted using Xpress It tape; Lawn Fawn sequins were added using Glue Dots micro dots.

Stay tuned for my last set, when I used mostly black and grey.
