Watercolor GrassesPosted: May 2, 2010
Weeks ago I believe I said I had one more of my watercolor cards to share. Here it is at last. Sad to say but I have not made a card in quite a while. The stamps are calling to me, though, quite clearly.
For this card, if I remember correctly, I sponged the paper and the stamped the grasses straight onto the wet watercolor paper. I stamped the same stamp in old olive and close to cocoa, but what was interesting was the way the old olive separated into green and yellow pigments giving me three colors. I then added little red flowers and drew black centres in them.
