A Fresh Bunch of FlowersPosted: July 20, 2014 Filed under: Watercolour | Tags: Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolour pencils, Fabriano Watercolour Paper, Penny Black creative dies, Penny Black stamps 25 Comments
This watercolour has been sitting in the block for months; I had forgotten about it until I opened the block to use it for a new project. Some of my watercolour cards involve splashes of colour and loose blending in and outside the stamped lines. This is not one of those but a more controlled watercolour. I stamped the image in Memento Desert Sand ink using a post-it note mask to overlap the flowers. I then worked with watercolour pencils and a waterbrush to fill each flower with graduated colour. I drew stems and leaves to make a bunch, cropped the design, matted it and added a die cut sentiment.
