Welcome to my third posting for GIU for this week. I have watercoloring supplies out, and used images from 3/2018 KOTM. This post is a tribute to my Mother, she was quite the artist, loved flowers and her favorite colors purple and yellow.
I used Distress ink Seedless Preserves for the background. The background stamp is Spilled Paint Unity/Brutus Monroe. Once the background stamp was inked, I spritzed a little water on it, then stamped it onto Canson Mixed Media cardstock. The tulip image was stamped onto Arches watercolor paper. It was cut out with a MFT die.
The distress ink was applied to a craft mat and then spritzed with water, and painted onto the tulip. I added a touch of Distress marker for highlight. I took a sponge and grabbed some color from the stamp(that I had not cleaned off yet) and sponged the edge of the card.
The cardstock is SU Marvelous Magenta (retired). I finished off the card with a bow. I added the sentiment from 12/16 Sentiment kit (Special Wishes).
Same card, same process- using Scattered Straw Distress ink. Greenery was done with Forest Moss and Mowed Lawn. I added SU so saffron ribbon.
I had one image left over, so decided to make it up without a background stamp.
