I had this stamp out for the inside of a sunflower card we did in class last week.
Before I put it up, I stamped it on piece of watercolor paper
and watercolored it with my Zigs and an Aqua Painter.
After coloring the flowers, I did a light wash in the background, then
randomly stamped with a script stamp and small butterfly.
Here's another that's a little more of a loose look.
I got some blooms where I didn't really want them. That's the thing with watercolor.
You never know what to expect! That's one thing that I love about it!
I used my MISTI to ink just the petals and moved the color around with an Aqua Painter.
Then I stamped the petals again over top of the painting.
I did the same thing with the stems and leaves.
Then I did the center.
Finally, I used the wet on wet technique to do the wash (and bloom).
is still open so I'm going to share these cards over there.
