Trending This spring: Fresh Vibrant Floral all ocasion cards

It seems like every day this week the weather is turning to spring! I love it! So I am sharing some trendy stamps that are fun to watercolor, They were so fun I had to make different versions of the same stamp just so you can see how versatile they really are! 

I hope to have some video tutorials of these soon! So check back in a bit for a tutorial on how I did one! 

These Stamps were a perfect fit for my floral addiction (I can't help myself, I see a floral stamp and it screams to me to buy it... Okay, twist my arm, I'll buy it!) 

 This  More Precious stamp set comes with a hibiscus spray and a lovely sentiment from Proverbs 31:20 (I loved this scripture in High school) I was instantly in love with this floral card because I knew it would be crazy fun to watercolor (can you tell?) Pictured here I gold embossed the card panel, and then used Qor watercolors ( Perm.Rose, Sap Green and turquoise to get that amazing green with some Nickle Azo Yellow. ) I added some gold trim to the sentiment. I have a Facebook live video to show you how I painted the "wash" on this card panel. 
I didn't have to raid my stash too much for this simple card, I used Tim Holtz Distress inks, (Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Salty ocean.) I didn't need a green, the colors blended so well together!
Using a blending technique  I used the same More Precious stamp set

I had to save the best for last. This was my favorite one to create. I can't wait to send this out to a friend! I used a negative painting technique for this, and loved how painterly it looks! I used Qor watercolor again for it, and let the watercolor bleed a bit into the white hibiscus flower! I love this monochromatic look and it really shows how beautiful the lines are with this stamp set.  

listed at the end of this post is a picture of the stamps I use! 

This stamp set stole my heart before I ever had my hands on it! I love how I can add my own watercolor style to it! (learning from Jean Hains and Angela Fehr on how to paint florals have really helped me understand how beautiful watercolor can be.)

For these stamps, I used Qor Watercolor with a simple nickel azo yellow, and orange, with sap Green. I also added a bit of Daniel Smith  duochrome Saguaro Green to add some sparkles and depth to the greenery. (which I love!)


Here is a close-up!

I just want to say that if you need a good all occasion stamp floral stamps are my go too for any female! I really don't' think I could have enough floral stamps! These are really fun to have as backups when you need a fast birthday card! As you can tell I left one card panel open for whatever sentiment I need at the time of giving this card away!
