This went as a thank you to my good friend Loll (Stamping with Loll).
Recently I was a lucky winner of some of her blog candy.
I used the Blooming Buds set again.
I'm loving this set!
I stamped the images with Whisper White and heat embossed them.
The flowers and leaves were colored with Distress Markers.
I colored up the base of the petals with Picked Raspberry and
the edges of the petals with Mustard Seed.
Using my Aqua Painter I blended the colors together
adding more ink as needed.
The leaves and stems were colored the same way with
Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint.
Then after wetting the area around the flowers, I scribbled some ink on a piece of acetate and picked up color to add to the wet paper giving it a bit of a wash.
I'm taking this over to
Just Us Girls Challenge
this looks Autumnal to me.
Thanks for the visit.
