So, I was feeling brave and decided I could try this. Let me tell you, it's NOT easy. However, it is very relaxing and fun. And I think with time and lots of practice, you can do a passable job.
My first card was done with a stamp I purchased at my LSS, called "Organic Blooms" from Mama Elephant. It's a beautiful lined stamp bouquet. I snapped this image shortly after I began.
This is after the entire image was colored. I added some more blending and details before the card was completed.
I don't think by any means I am now an expert on this technique. In fact, it is very challenging, but also SO relaxing. I encourage you to try it. I had so much fun, I made a second card. The second cards was using the Ton Loose Peonies stamps. And quite frankly, this was a practice piece I made on the back of a scrap piece of watercolor paper (that had other stuff on the other side, LOL) and I decided to cut it out and use it, even though I know it is very amateurish.
I hope you've enjoyed my blog post today!
