Spellbinders | Watercolor Florals by Sushma Hegde

Hello, crafty friends!
Happy Thursday and welcome to my blog! I have a card and bookmark set to share today using the Layered Wildflowers Clear Stamp Set which is a part of the Watercolor Florals Collection by Sushma Hegde. This is such a beautiful collection of floral stamps that can be used with many different techniques to create easy watercolored projects in no time.

I have used the Layered Wildflowers Clear Stamp Set for my projects today. Layered Wildflowers is part of the Watercolor Florals Collection by Sushma Hegde. The set of 10 clear Photopolymer stamps is designed to work with an acrylic block, and made in the U.S.A. Each image when layered on top of each other creates shadows and dimension of a one-layer wildflower. Stamp one or a bunch for a lovely field of florals!

For my card, I first ink blended Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron Distress inks over a panel of Canson Montval Watercolor Paper using a blender brush. Then, I stamped the layering florals and foliage from the Layered Wildflowers Clear Stamp Set using a variety of dye inks. Once that was complete, I splattered the flowers with black acrylic paint and let dry.

Then, I wrapped some natural hemp around my card panel for interest. I die cut the tag from last month's Amazing Paper Grace Club Kit from a scrap piece of White Cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the Wonderful Spring Stamp set on it using brown dye ink. I then popped it on the panel using foam adhesive. 

I matted my card panel with Gold Mirror Cardstock before adhering it to a top-folding white card base. I love how this card came together in no time! 

Next, I have this bookmark to share featuring the same stamp set. I went with a very artsy, loose watercolored look on this one.

To create my bookmark, I first trimmed a piece of White Cardstock to 2 X 5.5 inches and stamped the flower and the foliage from the Layered Wildflowers Clear Stamp Set using various dye inks. Then, I used my watercolor half-pans to loosely paint the background to add some depth and character to the stamped design. Once I was happy with the way it looked, I went ahead and added some paint splatters with black acrylic paint and let dry.

All that was needed to complete my bookmark was a sentiment, so I went ahead and stamped a quote from the Spring Quotes Stamp Set using Licorice Black ink. I adhered a tag hole reinforcer and attached a handmade tassel and some beads to finish my bookmark. 

I hope you enjoyed looking at my projects today and I hope they inspire you as you create with these gorgeous new products. I would love to hear what you think of them.
