Water Color Fun

With the September Stamp of the Month
And the colors at the Color My Heart Challenge
Pacifica, Sweet Leaf, and Black
This water color technique was an experiment for me. I stamped 
the floral image from Paper Garden with White Daisy pigment ink 
on Colonial White CS. After the ink dries the stamped image is 
slightly visible. Using Sweet Leaf and Pacifica ink pads and my new
water color brushes I painted over the stamped image. After it dried 
I doodled with my journaling pen to outline the stamped image. 
Thanks Color My Heart for these fun colors to play with.

Beautiful card. What a fun technique to play with. I love how soft the flower looks. Thank you for inspiring us at Color My Heart Challenge Blog.

Your flower image does have a very soft look with using pigment-based inks along with the watercoloring...your card is beautiful. Good luck in the challenge...I have seen your work in many challenges. Thank you for bringing this technique to my attention...I have both Colonial White and White Daisy pigment-based inks and never knew what to do with them. It wasn't until I looked at the stamp set you used when I realized any filled in stamp can be a variety of colors with watercoloring. And I got Misti which also may help in the detail of the flower after the watercoloring. This may be a repeat comment, I'm not sure if this comment went through before.
