I love the look of watercolor.
I'd really like to be able to do it myself.
So I'm trying.
Sanketi of The Storyteller blog has been inspiring me to try.
She makes the most incredible cards!
There are a lot of other watercolor artists out there that also inspire.
I made a card from some watercolor paper and inked up this stamp from Backyard Basics
Then I squished some ink from inpads and dipped the damp Aqua Painter in the ink
to color the flower.
I added some accents on the petals with a marker.
Then I tried to splotch some green and yellow around the flower to add a sort of wash.
It looks kind of muddy.
I'll have to work some more on the technique.
But I was happy enough with this to share it.
I added some score lines to the top, rounded the bottom corners, and added pearls.
is having an ANYTHING GOES challenge.
says COLOR ME PRETTY
I inked the stamp with markers
and colored in the flower with my Aqua Painter
