Mothers’ Day WatercolourPosted: May 9, 2013 Filed under: Blooming Garden, CAS, So Blessed, Watercolour 9 Comments
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.
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.
Beautiful card! Love the yellow poppies. Your coloring, as always, is so nice. 🙂
Loved this on the PB Blog, Heather! Thanks for the instructions–I’m going to try it.
Gorgeous…truly looks like a piece of art.
Your mother likes it very much and would be delighted to receive such a card.
What a lovely watercolour look. Beautiful, Heather!
Gorgeous colours and technique! Should be framed and hung on the wall. I really love this card.
This is my favorite flower and you showcased it so well. I need to add this stamp to my collection. Thank you Heather.
