Bouquet Of Love Twofer

Everyone loves a twofer. Am I right? Altenew Bouquet of Love is an ideal floral stamp set for a set of two cards or more. Stamp it once, color it up, and cut it up for multiple cards or tags.

Here I stamped Bouquet of Love on a 6 x 9 piece of watercolor paper with Amethyst Crisp Dye Ink. Next, I painted these gorgeous florals with Winter Fog, Ultramarine, Turquoise, and Purple Wine Watercolor Brush Markers.

Use a wet on wet watercolor technique for easy coloring and variation of color. Simply, trim the panel down into two A2 size, 4.25 x 5.5-inch cards, stamp the sentiments, and add some splatter.

Meadow Bush Stamp & Die

Since I already had my Watercolor Brush Markers out, I decided to use watercolor with the Meadow Bush Stencil Set.

I’ve used the same colors and for the last layer, I used Altenew Embossing Paste sprinkled with glitter. For best results spray the back of the stencil with Pixie Spray or another temporary spray adhesive.

I skipped that step and as a result, my results weren’t as pretty as I’d like with the leaves and stems.
