Good Morning Ladies,
I actually felt excited to get into my craft room for the first time in over a week yesterday, I sat for a good 45 minutes not knowing what I was going to do, tidying things, generally procrastinating. I then looked online at a few different ideas and found a video showing a technique I hadnt seen before.
It was a lady called Sandi Maciver who shared her version of a Technique she called 'Sepia Watercolour' technique, she used 'Sepia' tones (browns) but I thought I would have a go using purple.
I took a 4 1/4 × 5 1/2 piece of watercolour card, used a waterbrush to coat the piece of card in water, I then added a little water to some Elegant Eggplant (purple) ink and 'washed' it across the paper, having the water on the card helped the colour disperse easier.
You can dry the card and add another layer if you like i then stamped the flowers in Versafine Clair ink and dried it, I went back to the Purple ink to colour in the flowers, adding colour to the centre and washing it out up the petals, adding more ink if necessary. After I was pleased with the colour I dried the whole piece. The next step was to get some bleach and a fine paintbrush and painted around the very tips of the petals, this bleaches the colour out and adds almost a highlight to the edges, lifting them from the background.
I then used Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to add some texture to the background, stamping in the purple ink and versamark ink and white embossing powder. I even used some sentiment/word stamps to add interest too.
To finish the card I inked around the card and lastly added some little white dots with a Posca pen.
I was quite pleased with my card, it uses Categories: Flowers/Watercolour/shades of Purple
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs,
