Welcome to the Rose Blossom Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! Come follow Close To My Heart consultants from the Rose Blossom team as we share our creations using December's Stamp of the Month - Candlelight Garden!
If you came here from Kim Hill's amazing blog, you're on the right path! If you get lost along the way, come back here and go to the bottom of the page for the blog hop list.
Inspiration: A card from the new Seasonal Expressions mini-catalog (I love being a consultant - I get to see our product over a month early!)
Technique: Watercolor painting.
- Stamp images with Archival Black ink.
- Wet the entire image first with a flat brush.
- For the flowers, color using the smaller round brush, dab a bit with a tissue, then go back over certain parts with the wet paintbrush to make those areas a little darker.
- For the mason jar, use the big flat brush and start at the bottom and brush across and up so it gets lighter towards the top.
Fun Fact: This was my first time painting a stamped image with watercolors. I am officially hooked and can't wait to do more!
December's SOTM is only available until December 31st. As always, you can get this stamp set for only $5 with a $5o purchase at my website.
Now it's time for you to keep moving on the hop! Head on over to Cathy's lovely blog and see her beautiful artwork!
