Creative Expressions

A card with some happy Toadstools .

Hi there , today I am going to share a pretty card with you . It only uses two stamps and some lovely Irridescent watercolour paints .

Before I start I'll just list the Creative Expressions products I used . 
Stamps , Woodware Clear Singles , Three Toadstools and Countryside Stems. .
Cosmic Shimmer Irridescent Watercolour Palette of your choice and 
Foundations Card Coconut White and Gold Mirror .
You can use any of the Watercolour palettes that you have or other colouring mediums . As I tend to mix my colours they are never the same as the original palette! 

I stamped the Three Toadstools with Archival Black ink to avoid smugging when watercolouring . I also stamped it onto some paper and cut the design out to act as a mask .
I used some of the stems to add some more depth to the design . You can see where the extra stamps have gone onto the mask and not the design .

So here is the final result .

I used the same stems to stamp randomly around the edge of a larger piece of card which will act as a border for the  main design .
After this I coloured the design with the Irridescent Watercolour paints before assembling the card in layers as shown .
The quote is from the Toadstools stamp set and is embossed with gold powder.

I think this is a happy gentle card that could be used for lots of occasions.
