Mothers’ Day WatercolourPosted: May 9, 2013
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.
A Mothers’ Day card would definitely fit the bill for the challenge on the Penny Black blog. You can read about it here.
