I have a quick and easy technique for colouring these tulips so they have a little depth and variation in both petals and leaves. Sometimes I spend quite a bit of time with brushstroke stamps, adding depth bit by bit in a stamp positioner. This time I added all the colour then stamped once.
I inked the tulips with shaded lilac and wilted violet distress inks, just dabs of colour to cover the flower head. The leaves I did with markers, a peeled paint and a pine needles. Then, before stamping I spritzed the stamp with water then stamped on hot pressed watercolour paper. In a few places I blended the inks with a paint brush afterwards but really not much at all. You can still see plenty of white space on the tulips and a little on the leaves.
I kept the whole layout clean with just a sentiment from ‘magical friendship’ stamped in versafine nocturne ink.
To see a totally different look with this stamp click over to a couple of cards I posted last month.
Gorgeous tulips Heather and I love the pairing of purples and greens to give a wonderful overall look with the marker straight to stamp then spritzed, and finished with a lovely sentiment. x
Gorgeous effect, thanks for sharing x
Splendid simplicity Heather.
It’s beautiful Heather! Love it! Liz
