Inspired by the colors, the flowers, the pretty background and the watercolor effect, I started with the following ink colors by Papertrey Ink: Americana, Pale Peony, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Ripe Avocado, Enchanted Evening and Aqua Mist.
First, I cut a Brushed Blooms flower and brought out my coordinating Brushed Blooms stamp set. I stamped the large stem in Green Parakeet with a bit of New Leaf on the edges of the stamp. It looks spotty right now, but will be smoothed out when I add water with my paintbrush.
Then I stamped some of the flowers in Pale Peony ink onto the Brushed Blooms die cut.
The larger flower was dipped in Pale Peony, then the bottom edge of the stamp was dipped in Americana ink to add a darker color of shading to the flower. I will use my water and paintbrush again to smooth it out. (All of the pieces were cut with watercolor paper.)
Here is the finished flower and sentiment, using Walk by Faith stamps, stamped after everything was dry. I added some flower centers with Americana ink after the flowers were dry as well.
And here is the finished product!
Sequins were added for sparkle and dimension...
Well, I am in love this artsy technique of using watercolor paper, water and my Papertrey Ink stamps to achieve a painted look, and hope you will give it a try! Visit the rest of the team to see what Master artist inspired them and how they interpreted their inspiration piece!
