Tim Holtz Floral Elements & Distress Ink Watercoloring

Another day another beautiful stamp set to share with you! Today I have a card I created for the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous YouTube Live to share with you featuring the new Floral Elements Stamp Set! This set features a variety of floral elements (hence the name) that allow you to create your own floral bouquets, backgrounds and more. This set is similar to the Floral Outlines stamp set, but with the ability to do even more with it!

Always & Forever Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Tim Holtz Floral Elements Stamp Set and Distress Ink Watercoloring


For me, I loved the idea of using the Floral Elements stamp set to create my own bouquet. I began with a piece of Distress Watercolor paper cut to 4.25 x 5.5 inches and then started stamping a mix of the images. I knew I would end up trimming the panel down to 4 x 5.25 inches so this gave me ability to trim off whichever side I needed to if I didn't get the bouquet centered. To stamp the images, I used Old Paper Distress Ink.

Once I had my bouquet arranged, I began watercoloring the various flowers and leaves/foliage using Distress Ink and a water brush. I used Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint for the leaves/foliage. For the flowers I used Mustard Seed, Tattered Rose and Milled Lavender.

After the watercoloring was completed, I added some more stamping using the script stamp from Tiny Toadstools with Old Paper Distress Ink. If you do this before the watercoloring, some of the ink may bleed because it Distress Ink is water reactive. So just keep that in mind. Next, I added some ink splatters of Tattered Rose Distress Ink. I finished off the background by applying Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to  the edges with a blending tool and then adding a few spritzes of water with my Distress Sprayer that I dabbed dry with a paper towel.

The sentiment is from the Idea-ology Metallic Sticker Book. I mounted the background onto a piece of gold metallic Kraftstock and then onto a piece of Distress Heavystock to complete the card.
