Oh my, I had so much fun watercoloring this beautiful image in some bold colors! Read on for the details.
I began by stamping the floral image in black pigment ink onto Bristol Smooth card stock. I added clear embossing powder and heat set it. Then I used various paints from the Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set to color the flowers. This was my first time to use these watercolors, and I have to say that I love the beautiful colors in this set! I also added diluted colors around the image for a colorful background.
When it was dry, I added splatters of Jet Black Ink Spray to the background. TIP: To cover the painted flowers, I just laid the stamp on top of my painted flowers. I was sure to wipe the black ink spray off before it dried!
I chose a sentiment, stamped it in black pigment ink, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I sure hope I've given you some inspiration on using this gorgeous set! Be sure to leave a comment before you head over to the next stop!
