Hello everyone! Today, I have a beautiful and easy watercolor card to share with you using the Altenew - Bamboo Rose Clear Stamps. This card is full of lots of shimmer and sparkle too!
Here is the card I designed. I stamped the roses using VersaMark Ink and then I applied Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder from Ranger. Then I used a heat tool to melt and heat set the powder. Next I added the inks from the Altenew - Red Cosmos and Green Fields to my craft mat and then I added water to the inks to be able to use them to watercolor the stamped images. The Altenew inks are a dye base ink and they work nicely for doing watercolor, however I have found that I have the best results when I add water to the paper and then add the color. I have noticed sometimes if I don't add water or forget to the ink just soaks right into the paper and doesn't blend as well so I always try to remember to add water first. The watercolor is very loose and I purposely went outside the lines.
After I was done doing the watercolor then I added water droplets and sprinkled some of the gold embossing powder on the water droplets. Then I used a heat tool to melt and heat set the powder. Next I squeezed out some of the shimmer from the Zig - Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and added a bunch of tiny little shimmery droplets over the entire watercolor panel. I used the flashlight on my phone when I took this picture so you could see some of the shimmer.
Here is a close up of the roses on the top of the card. I added some Glossy Accents on the roses and leaves and then I sprinkled some Floracraft Diamond Dust on top of the Glossy Accents and then I set the piece aside to dry.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on to a piece of Quartz Shimmer Paper using VersaMark Ink and then I embossed it using Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. I added the strip to the shimmer paper to the front of the card and then I also added two thin strips of black cardstock. To finish the card off I added Therm-O-Web Foam Squares to the back of the card front and then added that to an A2 top folding black card base. I also added a few 5mm Crystal Sequins and 10mm Crystal Sequins.
I hope you enjoyed today's card share!
