This design combines drawing, painting and stamping - the flower image is from Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy EZMount Stamp Set - Flower Power.
I first painted my background with a paintbrush and acrylic paint onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock.
I used a brush to paint the green stripes on the vase and added a tiny touch of gray on the white to get it some shading.
After it dried, I went back in with India ink and went over the the vase outline and horizon. I also added the the steams for the flowers. I used a little sponge to apply paint to the flower image. I didn't worry to much about cleaning in between colors - I thought it added a little interest. NOTE: be sure to clean your rubber right away after using paint. I used water.
I added a deeper blue around the vase. The sentiment is from Sheena's A Little Bit Floral EZMount Stamp Set - Magnolia. I applied black paint with a paper towel and stamped. The flower centers are a little bit of gesso. After the gesso dried, I added dots of black paint and went over the vase and stems one more time with India ink. I made one flower pop by adding red paint to the flower image and stamping it onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock. I cut it out and adhered it with Double Sided Adhesive Foam Circles and allowed it hang over the boarder just a little.
Thank you for visiting!!
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
