Happy Little Stampers - Watercolor Challenge - Anything Goes

And here’s what I made –

I wanted to make something that could carry a message for the whole year. And of course, what better companions to that than flowers!

I used Altenew Magnolias for Her stamp set, and distress inks to stamp the images. I then added a hand drawn branch for the flowers and leaves to grow on. Then I watercolored the scene using distress inks.

Once everything was dry, I trimmed down the panel to a standard card size and adhered it on top of a white card. Finally, I stamped the sentiment, from Concord & 9th Painted Rose, with a dark grey ink.

And that’s my card! I’m joining the following challenges with my card –

  6. I guess everyone already said it all about your jaw-dropping card… as for me, I’m still checking all details, like shadows and light, depth, and so on… Am I sounding like an expert in water colors? Well, I am in fact thinking how I’ve never seen these stamps before, especially knowing that I have them. Weird, right?
    Your water coloring skills are truly amazing!
