SSS Peonies Background Stamp

Hello hello crafty friends.  Thanks for coming back to another tutorial.  Today I will be sharing how I made this feminine card for someone special so let’s get started.

First I began with an A2 size panel (Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock) and treated it with my anti static tool.  Using my Misti, I inked up my SSS Peonies Background Stamp with SSS Clear Embossing ink.  (might have to do with a few times to ensure your image transfers properly) When my image is visible on my cardstock, I removed it from my Misti and used SSS Antique Gold embossing powder all over my panel.  I shook off the excess and heat set my panel with my heat gun.

I used my Zigs Watercolor markers for this card.  First time using them so I’m not too familiar with the colors.  I used Light Carmine, Tea Rose, Red, Deep Green and Pale Green.  Using the Zigs like Copics, I colored from lightest to darkest and added water to pulled up the color to the top parts of the flowers.  Again, not really an expert on watercoloring so I did the very basic techniques..LOL

When I was done watercoloring ,I trimmed down my panel so that I have clean edges.  I adhered  my panel to a trimmed down piece of gold cardstock.  I adhered that to some foam tape and attached it to my Neenah Desert Storm cardsotck.  My sentiment I used is from the SSS Hexagon Greetings (follow the same process above for embossing)I attached a piece of foam tape to my cut out sentiment and adhered it to my card.

That’s it!  This card can be really easy for people that feel comfortable around watercoloring.  I’m new at it and it wasn’t as hard as I thought it was.  Thank you for stopping by.  The products I used for this project and where I purchased them are listed below.  All you have to do is click on the link and go shopping.  I’ll see you next time!

  1. BEAUTIFUL! I ordered the poppy background stamp and can hardly wait to use my zig water color brushes with it, although I’m sure mine won’t be quite as professional as yours.
