This week Cath chose a lovely watercolor butterfly dress for our inspiration:
It just so happened I was at an Heirloom Pro Convention that was in town over the weekend and a stamp set I fell in love with (yes, and bought) along with a revisit to "watercolor stamping" gave me all the inspiration I needed upon seeing this dress. Perfect timing!
Here it is - very CAS indeed:
Although it's hard to tell from this pic I used glossy cardstocks which I think gives this card a touch of elegance despite the simplicity. All I did for the bird images and leaf image is grab some of my brush markers starting with the lightest color, randomly colored areas on the stamps until the surface was covered, then stamped onto the glossy cardstock. The result is a look of watercoloring but this also reminds me of Japanese brush painting. I stamped a script stamp over the stamped panel.
I'm really happy with the way it came together so quickly and plan on making a set or two with various sentiments.
Products used: black, white glossy cardstock; Jet Black ink (Tsukineko), Sepia Archival ink (Ranger); various brush markers (Marvy); script rubber stamp; cling stamp set-Chicks 5 (Local King Rubber Stamp); clear stamp-Think Big Favorites #4 (PTI); heart button.
Off to get ouside and enjoy a beautiful warm, sunny Spring day here in PA. Thanks for stopping by.
