Hi all, Its already the first of March (in Australia) so another challenge starts over at the Happy Little Stampers challenge blog and this month’s optional theme, Flowers, will be a favourite of many. I know it’s my favourite! You have until the end of the month to join in and I really look forward to seeing your amazing creations! This month I made a very simple card using only one colour. Unfortunately its a sympathy card for the worst type of tragedy, the death of a child. I wanted to convey all my sadness in my image, even though I know it is nothing compared to what the mother must be feeling. I made a video showing how I coloured this stamp which you can find below, but in summary, I first added the Spectrum Noir black water-reactive ink to the stamp, spritzed the stamp with water and stamped it onto my watercolour pad which also comes from Spectrum Noir. Then with my wet paintbrush, I just moved the ink around. When I needed to darken certain areas, I did it with my watercolour marker, also from Spectrum Noir.
As promised the video of how I painted this flower stamp. Hope you enjoy it and that it’ll inspire you to join our watercolour challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day doing something you love.
