I've started with a piece of watercolor paper that's been stamped with a houndstooth pattern. I wanted more of a hit and miss look, so just partially inked up the background stamp and pressed it to my paper with my fingers instead of a stamp block or my MISTI.
Next, I stamped the poppy and then added some blue shades of watercolor. While that was still wet, I added in some more blues, this time with Brushos. Once that was completely dry, I "painted" the flower with a light layer of Stickles.
The sentiment has been cut from white fun foam. It adds such dimension and is just so easy to do. A smattering of blue sequins and done!
Here's what I used:
Paper: Ranger watercolor and Neenah Solar White
Stamps: Penny Black Poppy Time and MFT Houndstooth Background
Ink: Ranger Watering Can and Jet Black archival inks
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro, Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Rectangles, Kuretake Gansai watercolors, Brushos, Stickles, sequins, adhesives, white fun foam, MISTI
Back soon with more my sweet friends...
