Hi friends! Today I am sharing a one layer card I made using images from Visible Image. I received the Roses Stamp Set and The One Sentiment Stamp and instantly thought it would make a great anniversary card or wedding card. I decided to pair them together for todays card. I started by stamping the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx ink on my watercolor paper and then stamping the roses around it. I used Distress Ink to stamp the flowers and then used my paintbrush to draw the color out from the stamped lines - I LOVED using this technique to watercolor my images. Distress Ink is water bases and stays pretty juicy after you ink it - coloring the image this way gave it a more painted look. I also added some yellow and blues for highlights and shadows from my Sakure Koi Watercolor set. I also used Wink of Stella on the flowers for some shimmer!
After I was finished coloring the roses and it had dried, I started coloring the background using blues and greens. I kept the paint away from the sentiment for the most part as I didn't want it to be covered up. I added some hand drawn lines to frame it on the card and I love how it turned out. My hubby wants me to do this same technique on a large piece of watercolor paper to frame - I think I just might have to try that!
Thank you for stopping by - I hope you enjoyed my card.
