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!
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.
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.
