Iridescent Watercolour Card

Hi crafters

Today's card features one of the Cosmic Shimmer Iridescent Watercolour Paint Palettes, plus stamp sets from JustRite.

The large feather design, from the Whisper of Wings clear stamp set was stamped four times in an oval shape, onto white card, using a clear perfect medium pad. Cosmic Shimmer detail white embossing powder was then added and heat set.

Stripes of different colours from Set 10 of the Watercolour Palette sets (Decadent and Precious Metals), were brushed over the feathers. 

I chose to use the six Decadent colours, which coordinate with other Cosmic Shimmer items in Phill Martin's decadent colour range.

The white embossing powder repelled the paint, leaving the feather images still showing clearly against the colourful background.

Six small pieces of white card were painted using the same Decadent colours of Watercolour Paints and, when dry, the flowers and leaf designs were stamped onto them, using the JustRite Multi-Step Butterflies and Flowers clear stamp set. 

The matching die set from JustRite was used for speed, but these shapes would be quite easy to cut out by hand as well. 

The flowers and leaves were arranged, as shown, and then finished off with some small black Dazzlers in the flower centres.

The Shopping List is below but should you have any questions please ask. It would be lovely if you want to leave a comment. Your feedback is much appreciated.
