InspireINK Blog Hop | Watercolour Simply Succulents

InspirInk Blog Hop Header Stampin' Up! team blog hop

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah and the first InspireINK blog hop of 2021. This month we were challenged to create a project using new products from this years January-June Mini Catalogue, and I am loving so many of the things in it I had a hard time choosing!

But then I saw this card on Instagram and was totally inspired to re-create it using the Simply Succulents stamp set.

Thinking of you using Simply Succulents from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The panel of watercolour paper was die cut using the Rectangle stitched dies, and I added a wash of Bermuda Bay ink as a watercolour. This is so quick to do; I put a bit of water on a clear block and add a dab of ink either directly from the ink pad, or using a re-inker. Then its just a case of painting it onto the watercolour paper. I often add the colour in layers, letting each one dry in between to give the piece more dimension,

The succulents are stamped in Memento Black ink once the panel was completely dry, and the panel was then added to the card base which had a layer of Bermuda Bay Designer Series Paper.

I love a bold sentiment, and to create this will often heat emboss a sentiment in white onto a strip of Basic Black card stock. I did consider adding some pearls or sequins, but chose to keep this one embellishment free.
