I got this gorgeous Penny Black Stamp (fresh) yesterday and I had to use it for this blog hop. It's perfect for (water)coloring.
I also got the new Distress ink (twisted citron) and had to incorporate that as well of course.
I used also Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink (re-inkers) for the background and even mixed the two to get that darker green. I wanted to frame the flowers from the opposite corners by making those darker.
Part of the choice to use Distress inks and not just my Talens ecoline is because I wanted to splatter water on the background to get that Distressed look.
I've stamped the flowers with StazOn and colored those in with Talens Ecoline, a fluid very vibrant watercolor, i've used two reds and a brown and a yellow and an orange and two greens.
Extended the stems where needed to reach the bottom of the page.
I've used 140lbs hot pressed smooth water color paper from Schut.
A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkly sequins to frame the arrangement.
Mounted everything with foamtape on a cardbase.
I really like the vibrant feel to this card, also really enjoy pastels, but for Paulina I wanted it to pop and be bright and cheerful and festive I guess is a good word.
Great blog hop over at Pretty Pink Posh, so please be sure to go over there and hop along and then even add your own masterpieces (not that I call mine that lol)
