Good Morning Everyone,
Every week one of my team members (Karen) gives us a color challenge. Luckily for me it was Old Olive this week. I love Old Olive and find it very easy to work with.
This is a combination of Kerin Sylvesters Card and my own. I had a scrap of Watercolor paper sitting on my desk along with this set and it’s what I used. I remembered how Kerin had lined up these flowers and loved it. So decided to try.
I added a bit of sunshine and some green below for the challenge along with So Saffron, and Always artichoke using the Pocket Silhouettes Stamp Set. Once it was all stamped I ran my watercolor brush over all the colors in the grassy area to make the Old Olive prominent and give it a watercolor feel. I decided to add the sun last (not a goo move). I used my 1 1/4” mask and dabbled on color and then moved it around with my Aqua Painter very lightly.
The flowers were stamped with Black Stazon and colored with So saffron first and then added a bit of Pretty in pink on top and blended just a bit. I wanted it to resemble water color.
I decided it didn’t need a ribbon as the matting took care of that. Don’t you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you’ll come back soon.
…and as always…..
Have a Stampinglee Good Day!
