Create a Smile – Hello to Spring

Bonjour !

Je ne sais pas pour vous, mais je trouve qu’il y a en ce moment plein de jolis défis et je me sens vraiment inspirée ! Aujourd’hui c’est encore une combinaison de défis (Create a Smile, CAS Watercolour, March CAS Card Exchange, …) qui m’a inspiré cette carte…

Hello !

I do not know about you, but I find that there are many nice challenges right now and I feel really inspired ! Today it’s again a combination of challenges (Create a Smile, CAS Watercolour, March CAS Card Exchange, …) that inspired me this card…

J’ai commencé par faire le fond en tamponnant plusieurs fois le papillon du ce set sur du papier aquarelle, puis j’ai embossé en blanc.

I started with the background and I stamped several times the butterfly of this set on a watercolour paper, then I white heat embossed.

Pour les coloriser, j’ai utilisé deux Brushos verts (oui je sais on voit du jaune mais il fait partie d’un des verts) que j’ai saupoudré sur le papier aquarelle et j’ai vaporisé de l’eau dessus. Et la magie des pigments avec l’eau a fait le reste !

To colour them, I used two green Brushos (yes I know we see yellow but it is part of one of the greens) that I sprinkled on the watercolour paper and I sprayed water on it. And the magic of pigments with water did the rest !

J’ai laissé sécher et j’ai fait la fleur. J’ai tamponné et embossé en blanc cette magnifique tulipe sur du papier Vellum. Puis j’ai utilisé des encres Distress, de l’eau et un pinceau pour mettre de la couleur. On ne voit pas bien les nuances car j’ai collé directement la tulipe sur le fond coloré. Mais j’ai essayé en mettant un papier blanc en dessous et sans le papier blanc et en fait j’aime le fait qu’on puisse voir un peu par transparence le motif du dessous, je trouve que ça donne de jolies nuances et plus de dimension à la tulipe.

I let it dry and I made the flower. I stamped and I white heat embossed this beautiful tulip on Vellum paper. Then I used Distress inks, water and a brush to watercolour. We do not see the nuances because I stuck the tulip directly on the colored background. But I tried putting a white paper underneath and without the white paper and in fact I like the fact that we can see by transparency the pattern below, I think it gives nice shades and more dimension to the tulip.

J’ai collé le carré de Brushos avec de la mousse adhésive sur la double carte blanche puis j’ai collé la tulipe avec des micros glue dots. Pour finir j’ai tamponné le sentiment.

I foam mounted the square of Brushos on the double white card then I glued the tulip with micro glue dots. To finish I stamped the sentiment.

Et voilà ! C’était la première fois que j’essayais de faire de l’aquarelle sur du papier Vellum et j’aime beaucoup le résultat. À refaire !

Et Voilà ! It was the first time I tried watercolour on Vellum paper and I really love the result. To do again !

  1. What a beauty, Izzy … those luscious brusho colours are fabulous in the background … love how you allowed them to show through that beautifully coloured vellum tulip … it adds such a wonderful sense of depth and dimension! Bises, Anita 🙂

  2. This is a beautiful card with a great stamped background. Love the colors as well. Thank you for joining a Create A Smile challenge 🙂

  3. What a beauty! You always make brusho look gorgeous, I struggle to know what to do with my brusho! I adore your card Izzy and love the tulip over the top, the whole card just looks stunning. I tried watercolouring with Zigs on vellum but mine warped so I need to have another go and see if I can improve it! Have a wonderful weekend Izzy, thanks for inspiring as always! Lisa xx

  4. Yes I agree….I love the vellum tulip and it looks so striking not backed with white card. The background brusho’s and the white butterflies are so unique and so very striking. Artsy card and so unique, which I love x.

  5. Absolutely GORGEOUS card Izzy!! LOVE your colorful butterfly background and really like the vellum tulip too with the design showing through! Lovely, lovely card! Thanks so much for sharing this beauty with us at CAS Watercolour!! :0)

  6. Beautiful card Izzy! I LOVE your bright butterfly background. The brushos have such vivid colours. Your vellum flower is gorgeous. I do love the way the background adds shadows to the flower. Very cool!! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour! xx

  7. What a beautiful design, Izzy! I love that background and I’m always amazed at how different the Brushos come out each time. So many colors in those crystals! The tulip is gorgeous and so beautifully colored. I love seeing the background through it! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Watercolour!

  8. Oh my, Isabelle, what an amazing card! I love the technique you’ve used, adding all that embossing for your background, and then letting the green Brusho disperse the colours in those bright yellows and greens. I love that you added the vellum tulip without a white backing. The shadowy colour changes caused by the background adds so much depth and character. A wonderful creation! Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
