Spring Blooms Watercolour

Hello there :0)

As Tara mentioned yesterday in her blog post, you may see a good smattering of watercolour this week and I'm continuing the trend today using Wplus9's Spring Blooms but I've used the technique that Dawn Woleslagle demonstrated on the Wplus9 blog over the weekend...

For my planter I've used the solid jar insert from Fresh Preserves and used my distress markers to apply ink around the bottom and side edges of the stamp... the fact it's polka dotted doesn't matter as you move the ink about to cover that when you use your waterbrush.
I then used leaves and florals from the Spring Blooms stamp set with distress markers to make my arrangement, just as Dawn did in the video.... it really is fun to play and any failed attempts you should count as practice, this was my third piece but even now I can see improvements that could be made :0)

The sentiment is from the Mama Elephant Everyday Greetings set and as you can see I had a slight ooopsie whilst stamping it but I love the effect...... my old toy typewriter used to do that often!!!

If you haven't watched the video I really recommend it... Dawn is amazing at getting the most from her stamps :0)

I'm really hoping to give this watercolour technique a try, the video was great and your results are fab. :)
Did you use regular stamping cardstock or watercolour paper?

Hi Natty, Thanks for your comment :0)
Yes sorry, forgot to mention that I used watercolour cardstock...Tim Holtz brand actually but any would do :0)

Wow. As if we needed another reason to lust after 'Fresh Cut Florals'!
