Joy Clair World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop

Hello and happy Saturday! Today I am sharing a card I created for the Joy Clair Blog Hop. I was so excited to be asked to be a guest designer for this hop. Make sure to scroll to the bottom of my post to get all the blog hop details.

To get all the soft colors I used the new Delicata Ink colors in Rose Gold, Pink Shimmer, Sapphire Blue, and Champagne. I was going for a soft feminine look but after I was done realized these colors together would also make a gorgeous wedding card.

I started with Joy Clairs Hugs and Smiles stamp set and used the swirly like flowers from it. I stamped it with VersaMark and then embossed it with white embossing powder. I then smooched some of the Delicata Rose Gold and Pink Shimmer onto my craft mat and picked the color up with a water brush and painted the colors onto the flowers. The white embossed areas act as a resist so the ink won't stick to it. I did the same process for the small flowers but used Delicata Sapphire Blue.

Below the flowers, I watercolored on the Delicata Champagne ink blending it lighter as I moved down the card.

In the bottom corner, I used a couple of the sentiments from the set and one of the small envelope stamps. Added some champagne pearls, backed the card front with some black, attached it to the front of my card and I was done.
