Clean and Simple #183

I created this card for the Clean and Simple challenge. I love, but love, to paint with watercolors so I decided to paint a flower as a focal point for this sketch.

First, I stamped the rose on watercolor paper with Staz-On. Secondly, I wet the areas I wanted to color (Rose Red) petal by petal, trying to paint one petal at a time, and started applying color. I used our classic inks directly from the ink pad, let the paper dry and retouched the areas where I wanted the color to be darker. To darken, I used Cherry Cobbler. I left some white areas to reflect the light.

Hope you like it! Enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Gorgeous. Love this stamp and hope it stays for another year (or ten). It was new the first year I learned about Stampin' Up, so I have a soft place in my heart for it. And what could be better for water-coloring?
