The challenge at Sweet Stamps this week is to 'Think Spring'. I used this gorgeous Floral Arrangement stamp-I stamped and embossed it on Watercolor paper and used watercolor crayons to color it.
I used Authentique DSP called Genuine and was inspired by the blue/yellow colors to watercolor my image. I used Black embossing powder using Ranger embossing Ink. After watercoloring, I added a light grey layer and shadowing around the image that is hard to see in the picture.
I used Raw Sienna Creative Inspirations Paint to color the Cheery Lynn Italian Doily Die behind the image, the butterfly die- also Cheery Lynn and the Seam Binding. I colored the rhinestones with Copic YR24 from the Harvest Gold set. I added the Cheery Lynn Dancing Doily Border Edge in Navy under the seam binding. I used to sew alot- this border looks like tatting to me- I LOVE it!!!
