Be MinePosted: January 17, 2017 Filed under: a rose, Peerless watercolours, with affection | Tags: Peerless Transparent Watercolors, Penny Black stamps, Ranger Distress inks 4 Comments
This cute little couple is a new stamp from Penny Black called ‘the rose’. I stamped it in vintage photo distress ink then watercoloured it with peerless watercolour paints. I like the muted look of the vintage photo ink combined with the paint from the peerless palette.
I kept the design pretty simple by adding only ground under their feet but no extra background images or colour. Instead I made my own patterned panel by stamping the ‘be mine’ sentiment along with a tiny heart repeatedly in vintage photo ink. The tiny heart is cut from a row of five included in the ‘from the heart’ set. It was ideal for filling in little gaps around the words.
Pop over to my youtube channel to see how I set up my peerless palette.

Love the background and whole composition! Good job!
This is a lovely modern image and would be great for a young couple’s anniversary. I love the way you have watercoloured it so beautifully Heather and the background made from the sentiment works really well. x
This is so cute! I love your watercoloring on this.
Awww, so sweet, great coloring!
