Jenny has challenged us to use complementary colors on our cards at
I've used red and green this time.
I've done a no line watercolor look by placing this stamp in my MISTI and first inking
the flower heads with Spun Sugar, then inking the petals with Distress Markers.
By using the MISTI I can ink small sections
and stamp and even stamp again if I need more definition.
I used a damp waterbrush to move the colors and when it was all painted
and dried, I used a little re-inker and the wet on wet technique to
add a light wash to the background.
I added some lines and highlights to the flowers with watercolor pencils.
This is quite a large image, so I cut one flower off and fussy cut it out
to go on a second card.
I love getting a twofer out of one image!
Our Guest Designer, Anita has added her fantastic inspiration to our
Design Team's line up. I hope you'll go check out CAS Watercolour
and join in too. It's open until the 24th!
