Floral Watercolor Eclipse Card

Floral Watercolor Eclipse Card

Hello crafty friends! Lauren here, sharing this watercolored floral card. I used the brand new Kind Floral stamp set and color burst powders. 

 

 I started by stamping the florals onto aqua pigment paper with Raven detail ink. After stamping twice with the Misti, I then stamped over it with embossing ink and heat set it with Icicle (clear) EP. I used a water brush and color burst powders to color the image, and then set it aside to dry.

In case you've never heard of it, an "Eclipse card" is one where you die cut a portion of the image and then raise it up so that it stands out just slightly from the background. There are a lot of great YouTube videos on this technique, but I'll do my best to describe it here as well! I used the Uppercase Alphabet dies and positioned the letters in a straight line, and held them in place with purple tape on the front of the colored panel. The words "Te Quiero" means I love you in Spanish! I carefully put the die cut pieces aside, and stuck them to a scrap of purple tape to be sure I didn't lose them! Then I die cut the words 5 more times from Alabaster cardstock. I backed the floral panel with a piece of Alabaster cardstock, so that when you raise the letters up high and glue them back into place, there's something in that void to adhere them to. I stacked and glued all five of each letter to make a thick stack, and then topped the stack with the letter that was originally cut from the colored panel. I glued them back into place on the card front.

 

I finished the whole thing off by matting it on a white card base, and gluing a few of the new prism sequins to the front.
