Blue Blossom of Happy!

Sharing a truly favorite floral stamp set here today!  No .. not my only fave floral, since it's positively impossible for me to have an only in this category.  


It's shameful to admit how many times I've stamped + colored images from the 2-box Remarkable You stamp set ... truly shameful.  My favorite coloring method is using aqua pens, and since it's a technique that is very soothing to me, I tend to do it a LOT ... just because!  Surely that's linked back to my coloring book days.  

Tex's Tip:  When using an aqua pen on regular card stock instead of watercolor paper, do not fill the chamber with water!  It's much easier to control the amount of the water by dipping the brush into a small cup.  Thus, there's less chance of pilling due to too much water.  ;)


   I'm happy to play in the Paper Players Challenge today, in their CAS Floral category!

Images shown are from these stamp sets:
  • Remarkable You = blossom and leaves
  • Cottage Greetings = sentiment
  • Gorgeous Grunge = filler spatters
Hope you like it!

Remarkable in Indigo

Believe it or not, I still have a couple of my coloring books from way back when.  Truth!  Although I've moved on from my earliest coloring tool of choice, crayons, I do still seriously enjoy coloring.  I'm not one of those who chooses alcohol markers first.  In fact, markers actually fall much lower on my list of personal choices.  *gasp* 

So, my upcoming class will focus on the relaxing use of Aqua Painters.  I can literally escape into a sublime form of mental relaxation when using these water-filled brushes.  Today's Sketch Challenge, SC592, provided the sketch I've used for one of our card designs coming up this weekend.  I love it when things seem to fall together so easily!

One of my favorite things about the Remarkable You stamp set is the delightful sketched style of the line-art images ... perfect for watercoloring!

It's a two-box set, including three different blossoms, a full set of foliage, plus a sentiment for the card front and one for the inside.

I've used the retiring Bohemian designer series paper collection for the contrasting layer.  This piece is the reverse side of one of the boldly-colored papers and features the Delightful Dijon color plus Very Vanilla.  So, I chose the blossom colors from the same paper collection.  Island Indigo was used for coloring the blossom and for the card base.  Mossy Meadow ink was used for the foliage.

Have a great last-half of the week, m'friends!
