To make this card, I used a piece of 100% Cotton Cardstock Watercolor Paper from Marco's. I used a paintbrush and painted the panel with water. Then, on a spare acrylic block, I added a drop of Adirondack Stream reinker and a drop of Adirondack Lettuce reinker. I painted the panel with the reinkers and water, allowing the two colors to bleed together. I sprayed some Sheer Shimmer Spritz Gold from Tsukineko onto the panel. Once dry, I took some bubble wrap that I dipped into some white gesso and stamped it onto the panel.
Then, I stamped a portion of a floral image from Innovative Stamp Creations (Nature Silhouette) with Versafine Onyx Black to create the stem.
The flowers are also from Innovative Stamp Creations (Art4Frames), and was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black onto a scrap of the 100% Cotton Cardstock Watercolor paper that was waterwashed with Adirondack Cranberry reinker. I cut around the flowers and added them to the silhouette stem.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Inspired by today's MIX4 challenge, Water You Doing? Thanks for a great challenge!
