Flower Power

This week I decided to play with my new Mason Jar Flowers stamp from RubberMoon. It's so sweet and so much fun to color in!

For the card above, I began with a scrap of watercolor paper. Whenever I have left over ink, or paint, or anything like that from a project, I like to smear it onto cardstock to use later as a background. That's what I did here. It's a combination of Colourarte Twinkling H2O's left on a brush and a blob of Liquid Pearls that came out when I was trying to get the gunk unstuck.

Since my background was already in place, I simply stamped the image using StazOn Jet Black ink. I colored it in with Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencils, using a combination of wet and dry.

For the card above, I again used StazOn Jet Black ink, but this time I stamped the image on glossy white cardstock. 

I painted it in with Twinkling H2O's. You can't tell from the scan, but the whole thing shimmers so prettily! It needed a little something extra, I thought, so I dipped my wet brush into my paint again and did a little splatter effect.

The little flowers were punched from orange cardstock using an old Marvy Uchida punch that I have. The "hello" sentiment is part of RubberMoon's Hello Sunshine stamp.

Once again, I've managed to create two completely different designs using one stamp. I tend to let the colors take me wherever they want to go.

Where do the colors take you?
