Two for the Price of One!

I normally only post one card at a time, but today I’m posting two cards, which will be the last ones I’ll upload to the Online Watercolour for Cardmakers gallery. The first uses one of the background techniques from day one of the course:

The background uses a stencil I cut on my Sizzix Eclips and Cosmic Shimmer Iridescent Watercolour paint. The glasses were also cut on the Eclips, and the greeting was stamped in Memento Rhubarb Stalk. Here’s a picture showing the background a little more closely, although you can’t see the sheen of the paint, unfortunately.

The second card also uses the Cosmic Shimmer Iridescent paint, this time on a faux handpainted Hero Arts stamp:

The stems were painted in an olive green colour from my Whispers brush markers set, and I think I’ll make this my final entry into the challenge over at Stamping Sensations, where “Anything Goes”.

  1. Just stunning and elegant Helen, I adore Poppies and you have coloured this one beautifully with that little added shimmer.

    Thanks for sharing another lovely card with us at Stamping Sensations.
