I am so excited to be guest designing today for Ellen Hutson. United We Flourish stamp set & Dies are designed exclusively by Altenew.  This is such a beautiful set! They are limited edition so don’t miss out! Today I am sharing two cards and one how-to video. Let’s take a look at my first card.

  1. Create an A2 sized panel from 300g watercolor paper
  2. Stamp an outlined poppy image first and than stamp a second layer poppy image with black inks on some white cardstock.
  3. Cut the images using coordinating dies.
  4. Draw a circle on the center of the watercolor panel using a ruler and pencil.
  5. Stamp outlined image first, and then stamp a second layer image in black inks on the panel.
  6. Paint the circle area using watercolor paints.
  7. Adhere flowers and add splatters on the panel.
  8. Stamp a sentiment in black ink.
