SIMPLE WATERCOLOR MAGNOLIA and a Reminder

Hi, Stampers!
     I hope you enjoy a pleasant Labor Day and that you have lovely weather for what is considered summer's last hurrah.  :-(   But, one good thing about September, besides that it's usually a beautiful month, it's Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog time!  The HC is open for business on Wednesday, September 4.   Okay, to this card...
     I saw the original of this card on Pinterest by Debbie Henderson - I like hers better, but thought I'd share mine, anyway, 'cause it's still pretty, I think.  I don't think you can exactly duplicate with water-coloring - either you've got it (the talent) or you don't - I'm somewhere in between I think.
     Anyway, click here or the photo for the details.  TFL


Happy Stampin’!

Details
  • The card base is Gray Granite, 4-1/4 x 11, scored at 5-1/2; the mat is 5-1/4 x 4, Seaside Spray, and the top layer is Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, trimmed to 3-3/4 x 5.
  • I embossed the watercolor paper with the Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder with my Big Shot, using the (blue) 3D Embossing Folder Plate.
  • Using ink pads and refills where necessary and the Aqua Painter, I lightly colored the magnolia petals with Flirty Flamingo and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz, using quite a bit of water.  The flower centers were colored with Pineapple Punch.
  • I did a light watercolor wash here and there and also stamped the sentiment using Seaside Spray.  
  • I stamped one of the magnolia buds on 5-1/4 x 4 whisper white inside the card and colored it with Blends in Light Granny Apple Green and Pink Pirouette (retired).
  • I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere each layer to the card base and snail on the inside.
