I was so excited when I saw the Blooming Buds set
that my friend Deepti had designed.
This is just one of the flowers in the set.
When I saw Catherine Pooler's card
I knew these colors would be perfect for Deepti's stamps.
I embossed the flower with VersaMark ink and clear embossed it.
Using Distress Markers, I colored the flower and blended the colors
with an Aqua Painter.
After painting the flower, I wet the area around it,
scribbled some ink on a piece of plastic and picked it up
with my Aqua Painter and added some color.
I used hot press watercolor paper for the first time
and I love the smooth texture!
Thanks, Brenda, for sharing the difference between hot press and cold press.
I'm going to share this with the
