Hello, Gaylynn here. Combining lotus flower watercolor with pretty background embossing works perfectly together. Today, on the Unity blog, I am sharing a way to pair the two techniques for one lovely card.
For this card, I wanted to use lotus flower watercolor along with a handmade background panel. I used two techniques for this one, and I love the way it turned out.
Sentiment: You are remarkably made.
Here are helpful tips for making this lotus flower watercolor card. To begin, stamp the lotus flower twice onto watercolor paper. Next, stamp and heat emboss the background waves onto color cardstock. Also, stamp the sentiment on the same color cardstock. Then, die-cut or trim the background panel. Next, add watercolor to the flowers using the wet on wet technique. Then, fussy cut (cut out) the flowers. Finally, layer it all onto the card base, to finish.
Here is another look.
Here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
