This is on watercolour paper using three colours of Brusho, turquoise, scarlet and yellow paint in separate areas. The paper was well spritzed with water before I tapped on the paints and then spritzed again. This time I dried with my heat tool before stamping the leaf and then the flower head using a black dye ink pad.
As there was not a lot of definition between the two stamps I outlined the petals of the flower with a fine black liner pen and drew lines on the leaves with a white gel pen.
I added a green button to pick out the green colour where paints had merged and a scrap of embroidery yarn tied into a bow for added decoration.
After matting onto a piece of black card which I tore at the bottom I stuck on a couple of self adhesive pearls from my craft stash. The sentiment is a well loved Judikins stamp, bought a long time ago from Stamp Addicts. The flower and leaves stamps are by Paper Artsy.
