This Hand-Penned Petals feel better card has a beautiful watercolored flower as the focal point. Do you like to colour? Do you prefer Stampin’ Blends or watercoloring? I love the look of both, they are so very different.
This was one of the three watercoloring technique cards we created at this months team meeting. I’m always looking for techniques or products that my team members would like to learn more about. Last month watercoloring techniques was requested. I was happy to pull out my water painters and play.

- Stamp floral image from the Hand-Penned Petals stamp set using Staz On ink onto the watercolor paper.
- Color in the image using water painter and the ink from the ink pads. NOTE: squeeze the lid of the ink pad to transfer ink to the inside of the ink pad and then pull colour from there with your water painter.
- After it’s colored in, die cut it with the coordinating die.
- Die cut the middle sized, Hippo & Friends label shape die from the basic white cardstock.
- Stamp desired greeting on the right of the label shape.
- Emboss the 4” x 4” piece of polished pink cardstock with the painted texture embossing folder and add to the center of the card front.
- Add the dsp to the bottom of the inside of the card.
- Add adhesive to the top part of the label shape and adhere it to the card front. It will hang off the short end of the card front.
- Add the flower using dimensionals.
- Add three rhinestones as shown.
- Tie a knot in the ribbon. Trim from the end to the know on both sides of the ribbon and then fray. Repeat on the other side.
