It's Sunday and time for one of my favorite sketch challenges. Karen and the ladies of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have, once again, sent us a fun layout to follow.
This week, I have a fun and bright flower arrangement for you. To make the image, water color crayons were applied directly on the stamp to the area I wanted to use. The stamp was spritzed with water using a spray bottle with a very fine mist, then stamped onto the water color paper. This technique was used over and over again until the arrangement was completed. After the image was sufficiently dry I used the aqua painter with baja breeze ink to wash the blue around the flowers. My inspiration came from one of the images in the SU DSP, Greenhouse Gala.
