One new product being released this month is Designer Dies to match this awesome stamp set!! See the image below. The dies are NOW available to purchase on the Uniko Studio website.
Ok, on to my card! I decided to use watercolor since it's such a hot trend right now, and I'm really loving the look!
The background is painted onto watercolor paper and mounted to the Rustic White card base. The flower and leaf are stamped onto a Rustic White card stock piece.
I did a lot of experimenting to get the flower to look right. Basically, I got the stamp a little wet with water, then applied some watercolor ink directly to the stamp with a brush, then stamped it on the card stock.
I'm very new to watercoloring, so I don't even know if I was going about it the right way. I know I'll never get a flower to look like that again! I think it turned out nice :)
I am entering this into the NEW Virginia's View Challenge #1 - Watercoloring! It's still open for awhile, so break out those watercolors and create something fun!
