Hello, friends! Today, I am popping in to share a project created with the new Spring release from The Ton Stamps! Effie has a total of 11 new stamps and a few coordinating dies. Instagram Hops are scheduled on March 17th, 18th and 19th at 3pm EST/12pm PST each day, but the giveaway can only be entered on Instagram! More details on that below…
Create this project by Rose Gold heat embossing the elegant Floral Balloon, offset onto a scant A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) panel Canson Montval watercolor paper. Color design with Brushmarker Pro watercolor pens in Magenta Red, Pale Pink, Praline, Almond, Cool Aqua and Lime Green. Brushmarkers make it really easy to shade with just water and a simple brush. Each pane of the balloon is just one color, either Magenta Red or Pale Pink (which is actually a more coral shade). Add color to the top, bottom and a slight amount at the sides and blend with clear water.
After coloring the flowers and leaves, add Cool Aqua around the outside of the balloon and blend out with clear water loosely. The more careless, the better – almost! On a full size Canson Montval A2 watercolor panel blend Praline over the top half around the perimeter. Then blend a quarter of Pale Pink and then Magenta Red. This variegated border kicks the detail up a notch for added interest.
Adhere balloon panel popped onto variegated border panel with foam tape. Adhere Glass Slipper sequins with Precision Glue near the sentiment and within flowers. Adhere finished card to folded card base.
