Hey y’all. I so enjoy to watercolor and I love that you don’t have to have fancy watercolors to create something special. Today we’ll use VersaColor reinkers in the colors Cardinal and Canary to paint the poppies in a gorgeous reb rubber cling background stamp from My Favorite Things. I’ll also use a VersaColor inkpad in the color Turquoise for the background and to mix with Canary to create greens for the project.
For today’s card, I used a few VersaMagic DewDrop Inkpads to watercolor and the VersaFine Onyx Black Inkpad for stamping the floral image and sentiment. I created a circle pattern background using GooseBumps and a paintbrush. Once the GooseBumps was dry I added the VersaMagic inks on top and the GooseBumps created a resist. I wiped the excess ink with a dry tissue and the white circles looked even prettier. Then I stamped a flower and leaf using VersaFine Onyx Black and colored them using the same VersaMagic Inks. I dabbed the inkpads on the Imagine Craft Mat and then picked up the pigment with a wet brush to color the images. I finished the card by adding a sentiment.
