Good Sunday morning. I used to be a watercolor fanatic and created a scene of some kind for almost every project. Somehow dies seemed to take over my interests and now I do very few stamped watercolor scenes. Today I was in the mood so I pulled out my Coming Up Roses and Fresh Cut Flowers. Here’s what I came up with.
I applied the ink to all of the stamps with distress markers because it seems to create a more precise image. I stamped the tree and branch image and lightly softened with a damp aqua brush. I stamped the main section of the leaves and then used the smaller leaves stamp to extend the leaf covered limbs. I touched several spots of the leaves with the damp aqua brush to fill and create the watercolor effect but was careful to leaves the thin limbs showing.
I applied a thin strip of green to the ground area and used a damp brush to spread the ink out. Next I stamped the tiny flower images allowing some of them to be stamped in the grassy area. I finished by stamping the small leaf image with green ink around the ground area and up into the flowers to fill in and depth. I used my green marker to lightly touch areas in between the upper flowers and then lightly dabbed with the damp brush to spread the green. I sponged blue ink in the sky area and then stamped the sentiment. As you can see I couldn’t resist adding tiny die cut butterfly. LOL! I really like how this turned out. I think the simplicity of the tree and flowery ground cover is just enough for this clean and simple card.
Thanks for coming by today and I hope you enjoy your Sunday.
