“Love You” Embossed Resist and Watercolour Layout By Di Garling

Hi there lovelies, thanks for calling by the blog. Today I have a layout I would like to share with you, featuring my gorgeous grandaughter. For this layout I wanted to go super pastel on the white background.

Love You....

I have created a VIDEO TUTORIAL so you can see my creative process, & I have also included some step x step pics below as well.

Let me show you how to create these stunning watercolor flowers.

Step #1…. After applying some clear gesso to the background, stamp & heat emboss some flowers in the top right corner in Purely White embossing powder. Also stamp & emboss some extra ones one a separate piece of cardstock. Any flower stamp will do.

Step #3…. Next fussy cut out the spare flowers like I have done here. I did about eight or nine extra flowers but it really depends on the size of the stamp you are using.

Step #4…. For the background, spritz page with water & spray a small amount of Pink Ladies Pink spray onto the background. Blend with some extra water & dry off.

Step #7…. Spray a bow & some die cut foliage with some Luscious Lime spray.  Now you can start to put it all together & finish off with a little background stamping & a few Prills.

As well as stamping & heat embossing some flowers on my background, I also stamped & heat embossed some extras & after coloring them with the above sprays, I then proceeded to fussy cut them out.  I have also heat embossed this chipboard title, a length of chain as well as these words that I stamped on the background with the Bonjour Butter embossing powder.

I also sprayed some extra flowers in the Bonjour Butter spray.  Isn’t this a gorgeous color? I love it. I was really happy how all these flowers turned out.
