I love these Prima Flower Mixed Media Doll stamps (this is the only one I have! LOL) and I was inspired by Sanketi to stamp and water color her. You should really check out her youtube channel! I stamped her with Faber-Castell Big Brush pens in a light color and used Koi watercolors to color her and the background. I then stamped the sentiment in Archival Black ink. I actually gave this my friend, Rosemary, who has always been kind, supportive and encouraging. It was fun to create something other than a card as a thank you.
I love exploring this coloring medium. It is so different from coloring Copics - more freestyle than anything. I have to let go of my perfectionist tendencies in a way - which I think has been good for me not just in my art but in life as well. I'm way too hard on myself. And while I hope to get back into alcohol markers some day -- I am really enjoying this new journey and where it may lead me.
