Another fun challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments – watercoloring technique. I really like the hydrangea in the Because I care stamp set so I used the image in my project. I also used the Newsprint DSP and Vellum. I love the Newsprint DSP. All the patterns are so interesting and they’re perfect for so many projects. I stamped the hydrangea image with Classic Black ink on Vellum paper. The Classic Black ink is a good choice to stamp an image you’re going to watercolor because the ink is waterproof. I then watercolored the hydrangea in Cherry Cobbler and the leaves in Old Olive. The Crumb Cake layer and oval are sponged in Crumb Cake to give more of a vintage look. I added a border punched with the Scallop Trim punch and Black Satin ribbon at the bottom of the card. I hope you’re inspired to try this technique. I can’t wait for you to take the challenge and post your creation.
