Rose Bouquet

I am sharing a sneak peek of one of the new stamps from Stampendous being released this month.

I decided to play with my watercolor markers instead of my favorite watercolor pencils.  I used the STAEDTLER Watercolor Markers on watercolor paper and blended the colors with the waterbrush.

I stamped the image using Ranger Archival Ink on watercolor paper.  I outlined the edges with the watercolor markers and used the waterbrush to pull the colors into the center.  I added highlights with white gel pen.  I cut the circle around the image after it was done and hand cut the detail areas.

The background panels are stamped with the Stampendous Seed Background.  The edges are distressed with a distressing tool and a hint of the lavender brushed on with water.  I stamped the Happy Anniversary sentiment using black ink on the same watercolor paper and created a banner. 

The new release of stamps has some wonderful images with beautiful flowers!  They will be available online in the Stampendous store soon!

Have a fabulous weekend.
