Watercoloring flowers

 I am back with a different watercoloring technique.
WHW 152: I am very much inspired by a technique challenge at Inspired By Stamping. Here is my creation:
 After seeing the stamping demonstrations from very talented Joanna M. a couple days ago, I was inspired to try the watercoloring technique she demonstrated in the video. Thank you so much for sharing!
I stamped the flowers on watercolor paper and used some distress markers and water brushes to blend the colors. It's different from my other watercolor attempts so far. Here is the stamp set I choose for stamping.
I stamped the flower centers first and heat embossed it. Then by masking it,  I stamped the large petals, making sure to overlap them and meet around the flower center. Then heat embossed them.
In the background  I added distress inks in Gathered twigs to create a marbled effect. Once dry I dripped water onto it just because I love those bleached out patches. Then I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it. A few hearts were also stamped and added glossy accents on it for dimension. And finished it off by adding a organza dotted brown ribbon on it!
I am entering this card in the BGC#65 - Mood board + Stamping. I found their moodboard very inspiring. I love those chocolate brown hearts and bunch of flowers in vase.
Hope you like it!
    Have a colorful day!
    Supplies used:
    White CS, watercolor sheet, Brown CS
    Flower stamp from Itsy Bitsy, Small hearts from Waffle Flower
    Sentiment from Inspired By Stamping-Big Wishes II,

Monika Reeck said...

this is so different than your cards
not much embelishment
nearly one layer
the color are so pop up if you embossed it with white embossing powder
this is really cool technique I will try this too dear Vinita
and I guess your card is a winner on those some challenges
good luck my dear friend
hugs, Monika
