Yay, I stamped tonight! The wonderful ladies at The Paper Players have such a fantastic colour challenge that I just had to play along:) I also have had the awesome promotional stamp set Reason to Smile for a month now and have yet to ink it up! This stamp set is such a steal for only $5 with any $60 purchase and it is only available until the end of July!
A soooo love water colouring, it just makes me happy:) This stamp set is perfect to colour in, or because it is a two step stamp set it is also great for layering the coresponding images to create a fun and quick coloured effect. I started by stamping the outlined flower image 3 times on Water Colour Paper using Jet Black StazOn ink and then used Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeaide Classic Ink and an Aqua Painter to colour them in. I then used some Sahara Sand Ink and a Blender Pen to create a shadow outside of the image.
The small floral was also stamped on Water Colour Paper, coloured in with the Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Inks and then fussy cut out. I placed it on the card with a Mini Glue Dot then then curl the petals upward a little to add some dimension.
