Hi All, welcome to release week I am very excited to have played with with the new stampset Flower of the Month – Pansy.
Watercolouring has been my favourite technique to do with colouring flower images.
I like trying the no line colouring technique where I stamp using a very light water soluble ink like Antique Linen Distress Ink for the colouring I have used Peerless Transparent waterolours. The colours used are Olive Green, Grass Green, Marigold Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Cobolt Blue, Amethyst, Mauve & Neutral Tint. To brush the colours on I have used an aqua painter brush which holds water when squeezed water distributes through the brush. This type of brush allows me to have more control of the water distribution on the water colour card stock.
For the sentiment I have used the Heartfelt Gratitude stampset, this is one of my favourite go to Thank You stampset as you have 18 sentiments to choose from. The ink used is Onyx Black ink for the sentiment as I love the crisp detail stamp image it leaves behind on all types of textured cardstock.
Inspired By Stamping has loads of awesome sentiments in their store don’t forget to drop on by and have a squizzy.
For the base card stock I have used a Naturals Confetti white along with Plum and Black card stock. I ran our of black linen thread so I used my black copic marker and coloured the twine myself.
For an added extra element I have created a pennant / flag on the top right with black card stock.
I have entered this card in the following Blog Comp –
