METHOD:

Playful Stripes
1. Dilute the yellow and red gouache paints and create an ombré colour wash on watercolour paper, 10.5cm x 15cm. Let it dry. Use the same paints, but in a thicker, cream-like consistency, to apply wider stripes on top of the panel.

2. Add little dashes with pink paint. Allow to dry, then trim around the edges. Stamp flowers and leaves onto smooth, white card with the
VersaFine and Memento Luxe inks, then cut them out.

3. Stamp a sentiment and adhere all the elements onto the painted panel. Fix to a 10.5cm x 15cm side-opening white blank to finish.


Subtle Ombré
1. Paint watercolour card, 10.5cm x 15cm, with some diluted blue gouache paint, creating an ombré effect. Let it dry. Stamp flowers and leaves with Antique Linen distress ink, allowing them to overlap.

2. Paint the motifs, adding depth with shading and highlights as before, and building up the consistency as you go. Once dry, trim the panel and adhere it onto a 10.5cm x 15cm blank. Stamp a sentiment, cut it into a banner and fix in place.
