I don't know if you know this already, but my mom makes the most beautiful and intricate handmade greeting cards. She's got an etsy shop too! Go, check it out. I'll be right here.
The reason I bring up my mom and her amazing cards is because she bought really pretty peony stamps and wanted to make cards with them. Since she doesn't know how to watercolor (yet!) she asked if I could watercolor a few of the flowers and cut them out so she could use them. I, of course, happily obliged.
(Have I told you lately how much I love playing with watercolor?)
I mean, I really really love playing with watercolor! I still have no idea what I'm doing, if I'm painting "correctly" or not, but I really like how these stamped flowers turned out.
Here's what I used:
- Beautiful Day Stamps
- Peony Bouquet Stamps
- Watercolor paper
- Peerless Watercolors
- Mission Gold Watercolor Palette Set (36 colors)
- Pentel Water Brush
I'd love to show you the card my mom made with these watercolor stamped peonies, but she sold it already!!!!
I hope this inspires you to pick up your watercolor set and play (even if you don't know how!) Let me know what you think in the comments section below. I'd love to hear about what your WIP (work OR watercolor in progress) project is!!!
