TLC694 = Coffee Painting (if not a coffee drinker, use tea)
CAS485 = Banners (add a banner to your card)
I am definitely not a coffee drinker - in fact, I can't even stand the smell of it. So I used tea for the TLC challenge.
I started by putting the rose stamp in my MISTI, colouring it up section by section with my Tombow markers, lightly spritzing each time. When dry, I used some coloured pencils to add a bit of extra definition of the petals and leaves.
I brewed a little bit of very strong orange pekoe tea and used it for the background. I "inked up" a small script stamp by carefully dipping the stamp in the tea, shaking off some of the excess liquid, and then stamping around the rose. If you don't shake off the excess liquid, you just get a blob like along the top or a bunch of blobs like the middle bottom section - I'm fine with it as I like the variety.
I stamped the vertical sentiment on a scrap of the same watercolour paper, die cut it with a banner die, and sponged a bit of tea over it.
The panel is popped up on fun foam for some dimension.
