For You Flowers

ETA: A fun side note, I have a some cards being featured on Claudine Hellmuth’s blog today!  I would love it if you left me some love over there.  :))

I recently received the Grunge Dual Brush Pen Set from Tombow and finally got to play with them this weekend.  These makers are water-based and perfect for doing a watercoloring technique.  I’m not much of a colorer, so I thought it would be fun to do instead of just coloring in an image.

I started by picking out a silhouette image from Hero Arts and began by coloring the clear stamp with the markers.  For the flowers and butterfly I used the lighter pink first them went back over them with the darker pink for added interest.  When I was all done coloring, I light misted the entire stamp using a water bottle and stamped the image onto my card stock.  This produces a watercolor effect which I absolutely love!

I built my card on top of patterned paper from Pebbles and added some rustic jute twine for texture.  The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.
