Watercolour Birthday Blooms

I have mentioned before how much I love playing with inks and water, but doing actual watercolouring is usually a bit beyond me …. or so I thought! Stampin' Up! UK Watercolour birthday blooms

I’ve been loving Rose Red over the past few weeks, and the colour totally inspired this card. I love how you can change the intensity of Stampin’ Up!® inks by adding water, and so when you’re using the inks to watercolour you get all sorts of variations in colour. The flower is coloured using only Rose Red ink, but you can see how many shades of pink there are in that one flower, with just one ink! Awesome!

The flower is stamped in the Archival Basic Black ink, which is great for watercolouring, although it will stain you stamps more than the traditional Classic ink. This is now my go to black, its beautiful, crisp and a true black.

The leaves are watercoloured with Pear Pizzazz ink, and a halo of blue added around the flower with Pool Party

The Happy Birthday, taken from Butterfly Basics, is stamped onto Vellum, and added to the card by wrapping the vellum around the card stock.
