Hello everyone! This is Nicole and I am beyond excited to be sharing a project with you using some of my favorite stamps from Wplus9's May 2017 release. As soon as the sneak peeks came out last month, I knew the Modern Anemones and the Modern Peonies would be my go-to stamps. With delicate lines and details images, anyone can create sophisticated cards easily using them!

You can see how this card comes to life with just a few steps in the video tutorial below. They are easy to follow, so I hope you enjoy watching it and creating along with me.

Watercolored looks can be achieved in many ways using various mediums that you already have. Besides traditional watercolor tubes/pans, you can use your water based inks, water markers, and even with spray mists! Wplus9 carries a beautiful range of mists so I chose 2 colors to color in the stamps images, Sweet Nectar and Sweet Gelato.

Just like any other watercolor mediums, you can add as little pigment as you want to build the color intensity you are looking for. Remember, watercolor images always tend to dry softer than they look when wet. So make sure to give each layer some time to dry and add more color until you get the results you are happy with.

I chose the "white embossing on white paper" look for today's card, as the heat embossing would be a perfect one to capture those beautiful images from the stamp sets. After watercoloring the images, cut them out with the coordinating dies to create a floral arrangement on your card. Sentiments used here are also from both stamp sets, and as a finishing touch, I added a few clear droplets between flower layers. These all help the floral arrangement to easily pop and grab anyone's attention.

I hope you enjoyed the card shared today. Thank you so much for joining me and thank you, Dawn, for inviting me to hang out here at the Wplus9 blog!
