Brushed Wildflowers


I used the acrylic block watercolor technique for this background: rub the ink pad on the acrylic block, mist with water and place on the watercolor paper.  I repeated the step twice using all colors.  Once you're happy with the look, let it dry then stamp on the silhouettes and this Brushed Wildflowers image was perfect for the technique. Keep in mind every paper will react differently.

I extended the image about 3/8" on the lower right ground area by masking with torn paper and rubbing the black ink pad directly to the card panel.

The Thinking of You image is from the  Sentiments 1 unmounted sheet.  This sheet has a sentiments to fit most holidays and every day occasions and I used it often.

Inks: Ranger Distress Inks, StazOn - Jet Black

Stampin Up - banner punch
Spellbinder - border die
Perfect Paper Crafting - Perfect Layers Mini and craft knife for cutting borders
Scor-Pal for double line embossing
