First I stamped the large flower in black on white paper four times, then cut out with the Petal Points Die Set. For a quick water colored look to each flower, I used the back of the stamp...yep, just flipped it over so the part that's usually applied to the block was up and inked that up with color then spritzed a couple times with water and stamped over my flowers. Super simple way to color in an image, and since you're going for a water colored effect, it doesn't matter that the color goes a little outside the lines. Just remember to clean the stamp right away and use a water or dye based ink that won't stain so you can still see through your stamp next time you want to stamp it the usual direction.
I found the technique worked better with the lighter colors like soft sky, blushing bride and barely banana. The perfect plum was a bit too dark for what I wanted, so I lightened it up by using the same technique with the smaller flower and doing a second generation stamp onto that one and then layering it over the larger flower. The DP is from my scrap pile and I stamped a different sentiment from Button Best on each card, then accented with pear pizazz Sprightly Sprigs cutouts and some dew drops and pearls. I think the whole set took about 30 minutes start to finish.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic day!
