Mothers’ Day Watercolour

Poppies for Mother's Day

Watercolour and poppies. A combination I love to use. Karen made a lovely watercolour poppy card this week also. Did you see it?

To create this panel I dampened the water colour block with a paintbrush and water, inked the poppy stamp with Memento inks: Bamboo leaves for the stems and Cantaloupe for the blooms and stamped it on the damp paper. The colour bled immediately so I waited a little while before stamping the poppies again in the same place. I then used water colour pencils to fill in the petals and buds before blending the pencil with a paintbrush. The background Summer Sky ink applied with a paintbrush. To paint with ink from a stamp pad I just stamp the pad onto an acrylic block then use a damp brush to pick up some colour and paint it on the panel.

Supplies:

Stamps: Blooming Garden, So Blessed (PB)
Inks: Memento Summer Sky, Bamboo Leaves, Cantaloupe  (Tsukineko)
Cardstock: Fabriano 100% cotton hot pressed watercolour paper,  Summer Sun Mix & Match Papers

A Mothers’ Day card would definitely fit the bill for the challenge on the Penny Black blog. You can read about it here.
