July is world watercolor month so I decided to create my card with watercoloring and the Dragonfly Garden Stamp set. I still have the Stampin’ Up! Water Painter I bought years ago so I finally purchased a new set. I love these Water Painters! I used all three brush tips on my card. If you’ve never used them I highly recommend giving them a try.
I started stamping the flower image from the Dragonfly Garden stamp set on a piece of Masking Paper and fussy cut it out. Then I stamped the same image a piece of the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper and used the Making Paper to stamp the images several more times. The Masking Paper helped with stamping the image over top of stamped images so make it look like a full field of wildflowers.
To paint my nature scene, I used the ink in the inkpad lids. The wide tipped brush was great for painting the blue sky, the medium brush tip was great for painting some of the spaces between the flowers and the fine brush tip was excellent for painting the flowers, leaves and stems.
I adhered the watercolor paper to a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock, then adhered the it to the Basic White cardbase.
I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Vellum cardstock with StazOn Ink and punched it with the Lasting Label Punch. I adhered the label to the card with Mini Glue Dots. I stamped the dragonfly image on a piece of watercolor paper and painted it. Then punched it out with the Dragonfly punch. I adhered it over the edge of the label with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. Last, I added a few of the Brushed Brass Butterflies.
