Watercoloring Flowers

More watercolor magic.

The first card was made by inking up the stamp with gelatos and then spraying it with water and stamping.  I got three different stampings off the one layer of gelato.  Probably not the best stamp to use but I wanted to try it - I couldn't throw any away so I did make a card.  I did color paper for the mat.  The sentiment is a sticker from SRM Stickers.

The second card - the flowers were stamped in distress ink and then when you watercolor the distress ink fades into your other paint giving you a no line look.  The card is very pretty.  I think I had 3 pearls on it but that third one is not to be seen and of course I only had 3 that size.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  The flower stamp is from JoAnn Fabrics.

Well off to clean my house.

These are both really pretty Barb. I got some Gelatos for Christmas and have yet to break them out but you've inspired me to give them a try. Beautiful effect!
