[Pretty Pink Posh] Geranium cards

Hi, there!
Hope you are having a lovely day.
Today, I would love to share with you my two cards featuring Geraniums Stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh. To make these, I used my favorite watercolors with pencil details added.

To begin, I stamped Geraniums images on 300g watercolor paper multiple times by using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Then I watercolored them using my Daniel Smith Watercolors. Once watercoloring was done, I added more shades using my prismacolor polychromo pencils. Then I cut them all using Geraniums Coordinating Dies.

For my first card, I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper into A2 size, then I watercolored the background and added splatters of dark ink and white ink. I also ink blended bottom part using distress ink Gathered Twigs and Tea Dye.

 I stamped a sentiment from Thoughful Greetigs on the sky.
To place my Geraniums, I diecut a white fence using Picket Fence Dies, glued it on the panel, then I adhered blossoms and leaves using glue and foam tapes. 

I foam mounted the panel onto A2 card base then finished it off by adding Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix, 6mm & 4mm Ballerina Pink, and 3mm Sparkling Clear sequins.  

For my second card, I decided to go with a shaker card using the new Seed Beads from Pretty Pink Posh.

I diecut a smaller piece of Scallop Frames Dies out of 110 Neenah white paper. For background, I cut A2 sizes Bristol Paper and then ink blended it using Distress ink : Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose , Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, and Wild Honey.
After I put my sequins and sead beads onto the center of the panel, I adhered window frame over them using Darice double sided foam strips.

I love to put various sequins and beads into my shaker, so this time I used Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix, Mini Sparkling Clear Flower, 4mm and 6mm sequins (RaspberryStrawberry Burst, Blush & Ballerina Pink, Sunshine Glow, Lemon Meringue), Seed Beads ( Blush Seed Beads, Rose Pink,  Cotton CandyPewterGold Shimmer, Sparkling Clear, and Purple).

Can you spot all the sequins and beads I mentioned? ;)

I adhered my Geraniums on the two corner of the shaker as shown, then I adhered Love You Script diecut I made with Simon Gold Glitter Card Stock. I cut two more pieces from white card stock to give the script some dimension.

Once I put the panel onto A2 card base, I added Blush Jewels and Ivory Jewels around the blossoms.

Daniel Smith Watercolor paints I used are :
Quinacridone Coral, Quinacridone Magenta, Rose of Ultramarine, Imperial Purple , Quinacridone Violet, Quinacridone Gold, Alizarin Crimson, Quinacridone Rose, Phthalo Green, Sap Green, Phthalo Turquoise, Prussian Green, Burnt Umber, Cobalt Teal Blue.

That's it from me today. Thank you for reading this. Hope you enjoyed it.
Have a wonderful day!
