Started by printing this stamp set in a floral arrangement on a mixed media paper.
I wanted to create a 5 by 7 card because I preferred to paint a bigger flower not tiny floral clusters.
I printed the image in light beige color so I could create a no line coloring effect.
Started water coloring the flower using Karin Watercolor Markers. Pale pink concentrating on the base of the petals and fading towards the tip, leaving a pale wash of color for highlights. After two layers of pink I added a little olive green to the base of some petals and added a light wash of gold on the highlighted areas for a warmth. Finally, I added warm grey wherever it is supposed to be shaded.
The leaves on the top are colored with olive green and the leaves on the bottom are colored with curry.
I added some splatters of white acrylic paint and some gold watercolor paint.
And then, I used the sentiment from Wplus 9. It is a very old set of sentiment stamp. I stamped the sentiment directly on top of the colored image with Versamark ink and embossed using wow gold embossing powder.
For embellishment, I added a few gold sequins from my stash. I then layered this panel on a gold foiled cardstock and then adhered it to a 5 by 7 side folding cardbase made of heavyweight cardstock.
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a disease that weakens the connective tissues of your body. Connective tissues are tendons and ligaments that hold parts of your body together. EDS can make your joints loose and your skin thin and easily bruised. It also can weaken blood vessels and organs.
There’s no cure for EDS, but the symptoms can often be treated and managed only if it is diagnosed.
I feel so proud to be a part of this special event where a bunch of card-makers and crafters join hands to raise awareness about EDS/HSD DESEASE.
Our card-maker friend Natasha Davies who suffers from this illness herself also found out about this disease from an awareness campaign on a radio.That is why she wanted to give back to the community by raising awareness to other people who may be suffering from this illness and do not know about it.
