Hi everyone, I used a technique that is still pretty new to me to create this image.
I painted the stamp with twinkling H2Os and then stamped it, so that it gives a watercoloured effect.
By using my misti, I was able to go back in with a lighter colour and stamp again to give the colours more depth. The colours are darker in real life, and here's a closer look at the shimmer from these paints.
I'm linking up to these challenges:
AAA Cards has a nature theme.
At Crafting with dragonflies it's the colour purple.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday says use more than one stamp.
I've used 2, the flower by Rubernecker and part of a tiny Stampin Up sentiment stamp. I coloured the sentiment part with a black tombow, amazingly it worked!
At Simon Says Monday, the challenge is to be inspired by a song. Purple Rain by Prince is one of my faves!
The scrap of dark purple matting ine flower came from my stash of snippets, so I'm also linking up to the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
and the theme at Happy Little Stampers Watercolour is anything goes and I've gone with the option of CAS.
Rubbernecker blossom stamp; Stampin Up sentiment from My Little Valentine set; twinkling H2O paints; black tombow marker; fun foam for dimension and purple linen card base.
