The Clean and Simple Challenge over at SCS link HERE - Glittery Sentiments.
The Color Combinations Challenge over at SCS link HERE - Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist and Pacific Point or similar colors. Color swatch picture opposite.
I took a mop brush that held a fair amount of water and wet a piece of watercolor paper, I then brushed some of the green wash on then some of the light blue letting them run into each other and lastly the darker blue allowing them to run into the other colours.
I don't have good quality watercolor paper so have to be careful not to over wet the paper, just enough so that the paint will run and blend smoothly.
Once I had the backgrounds done I took my SU Stampin Write markers Real Red and Wild Wasabi and colored the stamp. I then activated the ink by misting the stamp with water and a Mini Mister (this gives a very fine mist) one squirt is enough.
I used a Copic Spica pen - red to highlight a few of the little dots around the flower heads and cut out the Hugs greeting from SU Glimmer paper first going over it with the Marina Mist marker.
