Hello! I have a new card to share with you using a pretty Penny Black stamp from their newest Spring Release!
This was all stamped in Simon Says Black ink on Master's Touch Watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby. I got a new set of watercolors the other day, and this is one of the first projects I have done with them. They are Mission watercolors and I ordered them from Amazon after watching a couple of Youtube videos. Peerless has been my favorite for a long time because they don't dry lighter or muted. I love the bright colors, but they are kind of messy with all the little pieces of paper floating around. I've been wanting something that was small and more contained, that I could carry around with me, or just sit in a small area on my desk. I am still a little up in the air about these Mission watercolors. I do like them, and the colors are brighter than some of the other watercolors I have, but they are still not quite as nice as the Peerless in my opinion. I will definitely be using them though.
Anyway, this was a fun image to watercolor! I thought I needed just a bit of highlights in the center of the flowers, so I went in with some white acrylic paint and added a few tiny dots. I've decided I like the acrylic paint better than my white gel pen, because my white gel pen doesn't work anymore! It's all dried, up but shouldn't be, because it's not near old enough.
I mounted my watercolored piece onto a white top folded card base and added some Sparkling Clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend! :)
