Today I'm entering the Tag You're it! challenge, and the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.
This is the inspiration photo--
I just got the mini Distress Ink pads, set, 1-9, and I've been playing around with them a bit.
I pulled out my Jumbo Peony stamp from Stampendous, and got to work using some watercolor techniques.
I made this--
I black embossed my image, added water within the individual shapes in the flower, and then floated color in on top of the water.
There are so many colors in there, but Picked Raspberry, Scattered Straw, and Worn Lipstick are among the majority. Tumbled Glass is the majority of the background.
I worked this pretty hard, and I am really happy that I used watercolor paper instead of cardstock, or I'd have had a huge wet mess.
The sentiment is also black embossed onto vellum, with tiny dots of glue used just behind the letters.
The tag is subtle here, but it seems to work.
This is my first time at this challenge blog, and I hope to get back here again!
PS--I have a new photo setup IN the craft room, instead of way down in the basement, so I am hoping to get back to the blog post haste!
Thanks for stopping by!All Best--
