Every year there is one set in the catalogue that I often overlook on the first perusal but then it grabs me and I can’t get it out of my head until I order it, it arrives in the big brown box and I have a play. This year’s set is Timeless Love. I just LOVE the vintage style of the flowers as well as the font and sentiments.
I knew that my first play would involve some watercolouring. I know, I’m getting predictable. I wanted to try a style I hadn’t before so I stamped very lightly in Pink Pirouette just to give a slight outline of the flowers. Then I gave each of them a rough watercolour wash and then went back and added more colour and shading. I did want to keep the rustic vibe happening though so it’s purposefully not quite perfect. I loved the result without an outline so I kept it. Perhaps next time I’ll stamp over the top again.
I then added a layer of vellum to soften it even more with a stamped sentiment on top. My blog followers will know that I’m not a sentiment person. I don’t know why but I usually don’t add them to my cards. This one however, I LOVE. I love the font, I love the words, I love the meaning. So if you receive a card from me this year, there’s a chance it’ll have this sentiment on it! I then added some of the new Everyday Chic washi tape to the edges – it’s also a sneaky way of attaching the vellum without adhesive showing through. Finally I added a Calypso Coral seam binding ribbon, mounted it and I was done. And I love it!
