watercolored flowers

For this card I used Jofy stamps from Paperartsy, I coloured them with Distress reinkers.
The sentiment is from Sheena Douglass for Crafter Companions.

The background has been watercolored, I masked some areas with masking fluid in order to have some white stripes.

Challenges: Paperartsy - flowers and Simon Says Stamp - anything goes

I have a couple cards I forgot to share before. They are made with Altenew stamps (painted flowers) and I added some texture by heat embossing a scroll stamps from Sheena Duglass Stamps.

Multi-stamping and faux watercolor

I created this card with Kitchen Sink Stamps, I love multi-stamping!
I used Stampin' up and distress inks, I soften the the stamped images with a waterbrush in order to create a watercolour look.

A tag with Finnabair's stamps

I made a card with my new Finnabair stamps.
I created the purple background by misting a piece of smooth watercolour paper with water. Then, I sprinkled mica powders and I added more water to spread the colours.

I used embossing powder to give a metal effect to the stamped embellishments.

Favourite technique: multi stamping + adding texture

A new challenge: favourite product or technique at Simon Says Stamp

I created two art journal pages with Vintage roses stamps from Altenew, Avery Elle stamps and Wplus9 stamps.

I stamped the roses with Distress inks and softned the flowers and leaves with a waterbrush in order to achieve a watercoloured look.

On the second page I created a background with Distress stains, I stamped some solid flowers and leaves and I added texture and depth with watercolour pencils.

A mini canvas with glass beads paste and gesso

The challenge at Simon Says Stamp is to use pastes to add texture.

I made a mixed media canvas by using various embellishments, glass beads paste and gesso.

Below is a picture of the canvas before adding gesso and ink sprays.
