This past week I received some new stamps from my friend Lisa Haines, who is selling many of her dies and stamps here at very good prices. She is adding items all the time, so check it out often. Many are unused and still in the package. One of the sets was Altenew's Layered Lilies and I did a Pinterest search to get some ideas on how to use this set. One of the ways was by Marika in this video. I basically followed her technique of watercoloring, but since I'm no where near the talent she is, I kind of did my own thing in slightly different colors.
The distress inks I used were pumice stone, victorian velvet and gathering twigs. Instead of adding detail with colored pencils, I used my gold Kuretake watercolors and added strokes around the stamen and also spattered with the gold. The sentiment was stamped with gold embossing powder - added a few sequins and done.
Thanks for visiting today - love your kind comments.
