Super Saturday with Pam – Super Samedis avec Pam


Welcome back to Magenta Super Saturday!  I had so much fun making these cards.  I stamped and painted one large image then cut it into three pieces to create three cards.

I stamped the Floral Background stamp onto a piece of black watercolor paper with VersaMark ink, then embossed with gold embossing powder.  I taped the piece to a board then painted the flowers, leaves and berries with some beautiful Iuile watercolors that I found on the Etsy website. 
The watercolor paper I used is kind of delicate and to get a clean cut you need to use dies or a guillotine cutter. I let the piece dry well then used dies to cut out two 2 3/8” squares from one side of the image.  I used a guillotine cutter to cut a strip 1 5/8” x 5”.    I cut pieces of coordinating solid color cardstock to mat each of the images.  I also cut cream cardstock – 3 ¼” x 4 ½” for the square images and 3 ¾” x 5” for the vertical piece.  I stamped the sentiments and embossed the images on the cream cardstock (gold embossing powder for the happy birthday, clear embossing powder for the other two cards.) 
I positioned (but didn’t attach) each painted image on a piece of cream cardstock.  I wanted to add a bit of interest to the cream cardstock so I used VersaMark ink to stamp the small flower petal from the Petal Blossoms set a few times around the image and sentiment.
I adhered the cream cardstock onto pieces of solid cardstock, adhered the painted images and adhered everything to an A2 card.   
Thanks for visiting the Magenta blog today.

those watercolors by Iuile look fabulous! Can't wait to try mine that just arrived yesterday! The "master board" piece really makes beautiful panels for a number of cards.
