Water colored blooms

 So, a few people asked how the water coloring had turned out... and these are ones that have been done over the last week or two I guess. ( tulips are from darkroom door)

 The bra-vo is from Custers last stamp, and I am trying to remember the congratulations ( I want to say Hero Arts...) hey, its one of those things that got pulled off the wood recently if its rubber and if not it probably still is hero arts as I have a set of a lot of simple sentiments on the same set sheet.

 This daisy was done on watercolor paper with distress inks and some QoR watercolors over the top of it.

 a little vintage I guess but, that is something that just comes naturally to me. the sentiment on this one is from Verve Stamps.

 The daisy's are from one of the Club Scrap OOpsie daisy sets ( they named more than one that and I have them both) the Happy Birthday is from  Mama Elephant.

 This poppy is from Sweet and Sassy stamps ( its the largest background one) and the sentiment is from (I have to check I know its a clear one)

 So, this was mostly colored with distress inks and some pencil for the background.

 This one I messed it up... of course when it was nearly done I had stamped over the lower right corner of the bloom with the sentiment you see through the window frame, first time not enough, second time lets go one more time... ( did not use the misti lol) because, of course I can see through that sentiment... ( rolling eyes here) and the third time yes, you guessed it, wiggled the word and made it blurry. So it got whacked and tucked behind a window because, most of the flower was still "OK"
 These are hero arts stamps btw.

 The mondo magnolia is from Ellen Hutson and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.


 These blooms are from Altenew and the top sentiment is from Dylusions and the banner sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

 This one the Poppies are from Penny Black and the sentiment is from Avery Elle

 This one the blooms are from Altenew and the sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes from SU.

 Now these I think the big single flower and the tall purple flowers on the left are Penny Black and the cluster on the right is Stampendous.

 All of these cards were done by scribbling waterbased markers on the rubber and misting with water before stamping.

 I had taken them down to the table where I color thinking I was going to add some background color to them but,

 I ended up leaving them all a little on the clean side.

 This one I did add some stickles to the tips of the bloom and a strip of washi tape on the edge. ( which I do not like but, I am not going to run out and buy a bunch more colors of the tape because, seriously I have to force my self to use it, and 9 times out of 10 I dont like it when its done.
I would rather see the textile things like ribbons and lace on cards.

The sympathy sentiment on this is from Impression Obsession.

 This branch is from Penny Black. ( I think it was originally a magnolia type bloom) but, I scribbled marker on the rubber and misted it with water and so the softening that does makes it more of a generic bloom I guess? The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

 And this post can finally go live because, this one has landed in Cheryl's mail box. ( she was a recent teapot destination and it took me forever to decide what to make...) and then it took me a while to mail it. :) The branch is from Penny Black and the Sentiment is from Hero Arts.
