Here’s one of the new bundles available in the new Occasions Catalog. It’s the stamp set Petal Palette and the Petals & More thinlits. There are a few more products in the Petal Passion Suite, and they all coordinate!
Also included are metal embellishments, organza ribbon, a pair of embossing folders, as well as the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. I’ve used that DSP with the bundle in this card:
I love that the DSP is black and white, so you can add as much or as little color you like. In this case, I added some bright colors from the Watercolor Pencils and an Aqua Painter. In the background are some leaves in Lemon Lime Twist, both stamped and cut out using the thinlits. Here is what it looked like when I first colored it, before blending the colors together:
Super simple, I just scribbled some colors that I wanted, then blended them together with the aqua painter – like a paint brush. It doesn’t matter if you overlap colors, that’s just going to give you better mixed colors.
I hope you liked this version. I originally got the idea from Patty Bennett, who did a video on watercoloring using some notecards with the same colors and basic layout. Here are some of my versions of those, using some ribbon and cardstock to border the DSP, and the Whisper White Notecards – which are a bit smaller than the standard card size.
The good news is that because it’s Sale-A-Bration time, if you purchase the Petal Palette Bundle, which already includes a discounted price, you can also earn a FREE Sale-A-Bration item! How cool is that!
