I’m back again on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with some watercolour inspiration. The Grateful for Everything set from Concord & 9th is perfect for stamping out in multiples and just playing with the colour!

I started out by stamping the main floral stamp from the set onto some watercolour paper with some Versafine Black Onyx ink. This is actually quite a large stamp so I knew I would eventually be cutting down the panel. Once it had dried, I took out my watercolour paints and had some fun!

I think the secret to getting dimension is layers, building up the colour intensity to get the feeling of depth. I used bright, bold yellows, greens and reds with a cerulean blue wash for the background. Once dried, I added a few paint splatters to help bring the flat background to life.

I die cut this panel out with an MFT Stitched Wonky Rectangle and mounted it onto a side folding A2 card base made of Lawn Fawn Sunflower cardstock. To finish off the card, I stamped a simple sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Simply Sentiments set.

I made a bunch of these in different colours using different sentiments for a variety of occasions!
