Spring Flowers

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing a card using the beautiful Statement Flower stamp set (Altenew).  I love these large flowers!

First stamped and heat embossed in Princess gold embossing powder, then watercoloured with distress inks ... a few times as I kept changing my mind about the colours.  I believe I started with Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade, but the final ink on top is Abandoned Coral.  Peeled Paint was used for the leaves.

To finish, heat embossed the sentiment in the same gold powder and then splattered with diluted green ink.

Close-up ...  you can really see how bright yellow gold this embossing powder is ...

Your layered colors made the end result all the more pretty! Abandoned Coral is one of my favorites, and you know you sold me on the Princess Gold. Large flowers like this are a joy to watercolor. Love the green splatters. Beautiful work, Loll!
