A Stamp Off Watercolor Challenge

Stamp Off Logo Clean

It is that time of the week for our Friday Stamp Off Challenge.  This week we are doing a Watercolor Challenge.  I must say that although the image below is just something to represent a watercolor challenge, it would make a nice background for a card!

April 15

I went with a different route this time.  I’ve been doing a lot of watercolor background cards but decided to use a stamp to watercolor with.

Corner Garden, Watercolor

I used the Corner Garden Background Stamp.  First I stamped it using Versamark and then embossed it with White Embossing Powder.  The thing with watercoloring is you pretty much have to do one color at a time and then let it dry.  Otherwise, your colors will blend together where they aren’t supposed to.  In this case, I first did the pink flowers.  I spread  a lot water on the petals and then dipped my paintbrush in Pink Pirouette Ink and let the water move it around.  Then I added some Rose Red ink and let that spread a bit.  After it was dry, I added a little more Red Rose Ink to give it the shadow affect.  I had to do every flower this way so it did take a while to dry in-between each color.  You’ll notice I did not put a sentiment on the card (yet).  I am not sure who or why I am going to send it to, so I will do that part later.

Now go check out what gorgeous creation Buffy made HERE and Jackie made HERE.  That is always the best part for me.  I don’t know what they made beforehand!

  1. Susan, what a wonderful card. I love the fact that you did the embossed watercoloring because these flowers make for a spectacular option for that technique. Soooooo pretty! I think it looks great without a sentiment because the watercoloring is special in and of itself.

  2. *picking jaw up from floor* GORGEOUS card, Susan. I know it took a long time, but it was totally worth it. This is the prettiest Corner Garden I’ve ever seen. Love the colors and all the shading and shadows.
