So I thought I would join in on the fun at the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop
I haven't done any watercoloring in a really long time so here's a couple of cards I made for the hop.
I started with a panel of Strathmore watercolor paper cut using MFT's Blueprints #20. I did my watercoloring using Rangers Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade. I flicked on little flecks of color in Peacock Feather. After it was dry I stamped images from PTI's Doodlie-Do in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The sentiment is PTI's Graceful Greetings.
This next card was made using PTI's Nostalgic Notions to create this faux watercolored scene. I inked up the stamps in the colors of choice and then spritzed them with water and stamped them on Strathmore watercolor paper and allowed the ink to absorb into the paper before removing the stamp. I enjoy the watercolor look the stamps give when sprayed with water. This is sort of the cheaters way to watercolor, but when you don't have good images for watercoloring, this is a good second choice. I realize I don't have many images that are good for coloring in so I hope this will still count for the hop.
My last card uses Simon Says Stamp "Best Mother Ever". I stamped it on Strathmore watercolor paper in Rangers Antique Linen ink and then watercolored the flowers. The background of the card base was stamped using PTI's "Watercolor Wonder". A button, some string and a little strip of washi tape finish it off.
I'll also be adding one of these cards into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
Have fun on the hop!
