Soft watercolouring with your dye inks - PinkFresh Studio Floral Elements

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. When I got the supplies out that I wanted to create with for this card, I decided to channel the Pinkfresh Studio look as much as I could which for me included a soft fresh colour palette. I didn't have the time to spend carefully colouring in this lovely wreath, so I decided to use a fun and easy technique by adding soft watercolouring with my dye inks! This technique is perfect if you want that watercolour look but you don't actually have watercolour paints! If you want a quick video tutorial on this, make sure you follow me on Instagram, as I will have a Reel up shortly showing you how!

Written and photos Soft watercolouring with your dye inks: 

Start off by stamping the large wreath from the PinkFresh Studio Floral Elements stamp set in embossing ink onto watercolour cardstock. If you don't have this, you can use your normal cardstock, but you need to be careful to not overload with too much water/liquid as this card will not handle it as well and may pill. When you reduce the amount of water, you will get a more vibrant colour compared to the soft watercolouring seen here. 
Cover your stamping with Gold embossing powder and heat set. Next, smoosh your ink colours of choosing down onto a palette or glass mat and spritz with water. In addition, spritz you stamping with water. Now using a paintbrush start applying colour over the areas you want over the stamp - just remember your colour wheel and try to prevent making a brown colour. 
Once the colours have dried, using the coordinating die to die-cut the image out. For the background, use the Simply diamonds die with a white card panel and foam mount this onto a white card base. In addition, foam mount the wreath on the front. 
For the sentiment, use the Phrase Builder: Hello die set to die-cut the yellow 3 times out of black card and layer up. In addition, die-cut the shadow from vellum and layer with the word die-cut. To finish the card, add this to the front and embellish with Morning Dew Tonic Studios Crystal drops.
