Three square layoutPosted: July 18, 2013
Quite some time ago I stamped the spray of round blooms from the Delicate Florals set on water colour paper. I stamped it three times in different colours and with different amounts of water added each time. The panel has been sitting around waiting for further inspiration. I sliced off the green section of the panel yesterday because I was inspired by this card of Sarah’s. I really like the squares lined up on the extreme right and the sideways sentiment. I didn’t cut my squares quite as small as Sarah because I wanted as much of the image as I could fit.
It’s been a while since I stamped the panel but I think it might have gone something like this:
1. paint a green wash on the watercolour paper
2. ink stamp in green and stamp onto the green wash while it is still damp
3. add letter background in grey
4. when dry stamp the branch in grey slightly offset from the green image.
