MISTI and the Cut Up Bouquet

 Hi, Susan here on the blog with this card featuring products from WPlus9 Designs and my MISTI, of course! Without my MISTI, the card would have been impossible because I needed to stamp multiple times onto textured watercolor paper and to help with lining up images and items. 

For the main image I used Kind Soul stamped onto Arches 140lb cold press watercolor paper using Fade Out Ink from InkOn3. I did use my MISTI to stamp this about 4 times before my old eyes could see the image enough to paint! I then pulled out my Daniel Smith watercolors and my DaVinci Cosmotop Rounds #4 and #6. Once I felt it was complete, I tried to fit the bouquet as a whole on some sort of interesting background. That wasn't going to happen. So after about 4 hours of painting not including drying time, I cut the bouquet!!!! This allowed me to strategically place each section. I did allow the leaves and blooms to hang off the edges of the card as I will be delivering this card in person.

For the background I used Vintage Script after I had distressed a piece of watercolor paper with Distress Oxides and water splats. The frame was die cut using Postage Layers die set and then a rectangle from Hero Arts Infinity Rectangles. The sentiment is from Flora and Fauna 3.
