Hi Friends! Today I am starting a series of projects using the new Delightful Daisies set from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. The images in this set are so fun and the opportunities for use are unlimited – I am going to show you lots of fun stuff this week!

For my first project, I am playing along with the Sketch Challenge at Splitcoast Stampser (SC745).

I thought would try my hand at messy (outside the lines) water coloring and cutting out the spots from the sketch and popping them up (kind of like the eclipse technique) I think it turned out super fun!!

Recipe :

  • Watercolor paper – Tim Holtz Water Color Card Stock
  • Image – Delightful Daisies
  • Sentiment – Happy Birthday Set (This is retired now but you can still get it in digital format) Happy Birthday DIGI
  • Ink – Stamped image with Archival Jet Black smooshed Distress inks for the background. Colors were – Abandoned Coral and Picked Raspberry for the flower, Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron for the stem and grass, and Tumbled Glass and Broken China for the sky. When that was dry, I went in and added some shading with Inktense pencils.
  • I used Simon Says Stamps stitched circle dies for my take on the sketch. I mounted those on fun foam for dimension. Mounted the watercolor panel on Raspberry Fizz and then White Card (Papertrey Ink). Add a few sequins finish my card.

I hope you are inspired today. Thanks for stopping by!
