Especially For You

At Crafter's Companion we are celebrating the new Floral release of Bebunni! There are eight new adorable images in the release.  Here's a sneak peek with images from a set called Brighten My Day.

  The main image stamped onto watercolor paper and water-colored with Distress Ink Refills vintage photo, mowed lawn, worn lipstick, mustard seed, spiced marmalade and a water-brush.

I added detail and depth with with Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils 022, 046, 108 using a Spectrum Noir Paper Stumps to blend.  In some areas, I did not blend the pencils completely which resulted in some cool texture.

Next, I cut out the image and edged it with a black water-based marker. NOTE: I do this from the back side of the image just in case my hand slips and puts a big ol' mark, the mark will be on the back. :) The sentiment is from the set. I stamped it onto  Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock. The ground is colored with a Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencil 108. I used a very light touch to sponge in a sky with a Distress Ink Pad tumbled glass and an Ink Sweeper. To frame the card, I edged all four sides with a black water-based marker.  To adhere the image down, I used Collall All Purpose Glue so I could get into all the small areas.   For the center of the flower I added Stickles star dust.
