Here's Von Marie with her gorgeous watercolor projects: 

Hi everyone! Von Marie here from Vonmariedesign and I am so happy to be guest designing today. I have a trio of projects using digital stamps. I used Fluttery Garden A2 card fronts and Cupful of Blooms that I watercolored.

For this card I chose to use the Fluttery Garden A2 card fronts digital stamp. I first printed this beautiful A2 card front onto 110lb watercolor paper. I love the butterflies so much. I then colored it in with my Karin Markers, Silver Black Velvet water brush, and water. I like to grab my marker and lay some color onto a stamping block and grab water and color to my liking. I then added some gold metallic paint and added it in parts on my flowers and butterflies. I also added some matching blue plaint splatters to my panel for interest. 

I cut out my panel with a rectangle die from stash and cut out blue cardstock with a larger rectangle to layer. I then grabbed a gold doily and layered it also. I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from the Bloomfully Thankful stamp set with glittered gold embossing powder. I glued everything to a A2 black card base. My watercolored panel was then added with foam tape and Iridescent sequins.


On this card I used again another image from the Fluttery Garden A2 Card Fronts digital stamp set. I printed it also on 110lb paper. I colored it also with my Karin Markers. I added gold metallic paint on the centers of my flowers. I flicked some pink water droplets onto my pane with my paintbrush. I chose to fussy cut around the flowers and attached it to my negative part of my panel. I added foam tape to the back of my flowers for dimension. I layered my panel with black and gold cardstock and added it to a black card base.

I stamped my sentiment with black ink onto the same watercolor paper from the Bloomfully Thankful stamp set and layered it with black cardstock before adhering to my card. I then added gold glitter enamel dots.


On my final project, I used the Cupful of Blooms and printed again on the same watercolor 110lb paper. I used my Karin markers but with a different color palette. I love the blooms in this image. I ink blended around the image with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink. I love purples.

I then used the Manila Tags Nesting dies with the second to largest die and cut my watercolored image out. I then layered it with purple textured cardstock that I cut out with the same tag die. I glued them together and then stamped my sentiment again from Bloomfully Thankful. Lastly, I added sequins and purple seam binding for my tag. 

I hope you like my watercolored projects for today. I will be back next month with another trio of projects to share. I had a lot of fun with these.

Thanks so much!

Von Marie

  3. All are so pretty. I love the swirly flower one the best

  4. Beautiful designs and watercoloring! I love the mug of flowers!

  5. Very pretty coloring. The blue butterflies are gorgeos. I love the design of that card & the layers.

  6. Very pretty watercoloring on these cards and tag.
