I really love how this card turned out using Brushos to watercolour my flowers. I was surprised at how easy it was to get the colour variations that I wanted for the flowers.
Playing along with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast and this Pinterest photo:
This card also gave me a chance to use my new MISTI. Wow...amazing stamping product...LOVE!!
Sometimes, when stamping onto watercolour paper, the lines are not clearly stamped because of the texture of the paper. By using my MISTI, I was able to ink my stamp a few times and stamp a perfect, dark black impression.
I began by stamping the flower with black Memento ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. By embossing it, the raised areas act like little dams to hold the colour while painting.
I sprinkled a bit of purple and blue Brusho onto my acrylic block and picked up the colour using a wet paint brush and applied to my watercolour paper. I found it helpful to wet the area that I wanted to paint with water first to help the colour blend when applied.
When my paper was dry, I stamped the sentiment with more black Memento ink.
