Minimalist Floral

Hello friends! Amy (The Craft Bunny) here! Today I was inspired to create a one-layer card. The focal point is a floral arrangement around a white circle with lots of white space. This is not my usual style so I was extremely uncomfortable with the white space LOL. However, I decide to embrace it and see what you would think. Here is a closer look at my card.

  1. Die cut a circle from masking paper using some circle die. Mask the center of a watercolor panel
  2. Stamp flower and leaf outline images around the circle with Altenew's Beautiful Day set. Mask individual flower or leaf when necessary
  3. Remove the circle mask, stamp some small flowers inside the circle
  4. Mask the whole circle with masking fluid. Let completely dry
  5. Watercolor the flowers and leaves with Gansai Tambi Watercolor
  6. Rub off the masking fluid. Stamp the sentiment with black pigment ink. I used my Misti tool to make sure my sentiment is completely straight and in the center of the circle. If you don't have the Misti, you can pre-order the Mini Misti at the store right now
  7. At last, embellish with a few sparkling clear sequins
I love trying new styles. That's just me. I don't like to do the same thing twice. Please let me know what you think about my card! Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day! :)
