My goal was to make a few different backgrounds for you to see with other colors but, time just slipped away and unexpected things came up. Two days ago I used this same flower on my window card here. I have so many awesome flower stamps but, had this stamped background on hand called, “Winter Blooms” and I love how it’s so easy to color especially for watercolors.
I love stacking and stacking a die cut word. This thanks is from Lawn Fawn called, “Scripty Thanks” and such a great value. After adding some white dots with a gel pen I used the white puffy paint in the flowers centers.
If you saw this video …. I used the same technique on the flowers but, I chose not to blend the colors and just let the color sit and dry. The background was watercolored with some distress ink and once dry I outlined the flowers with some grey markers.
I wanted to be able to control the colors on the leaves because the flowers are more free form so I decided to color the leaves with Copic markers once my watercolor paper was dry. That’s if for today. I wanted to thank those of you who stopped by the Mama Elephant Blog during my giveaway …. you guys rock. Thanks and more thanks for your visit. “See” you tomorrow. Hugs, Kathy
