pink and blue floral 2

Enamor is a new transparent set of floral stamps from the  Sunshine and Smiles collection; it includes both outline and solid stamps. I have featured one of each in today’s projects.

To make these two clean and simple cards I created a ‘wet into wet’ watercolour panel by dropping three colours onto a wet piece of watercolour paper then sprinkling some salt crystals here and there.

Once the panel was dry I brushed off the salt and stamped twice in colours which matched the background.

I then spritzed the stamped images and let them bleed into the surrounding area. Once the panel was dry again I stamped again in black then cut it into two pieces.

I picked an outline stamp to stamp over the patterns created by the salt on the second piece. I added black mats and sentiments to tie everything together.
