A Tiny Bit of Watercolor

So I saw a post this morning with lovely water colored flowers by Dawn of WPlus9 and was inspired to play a bit. Here's a link to the post at Stamp Away With Me. Dawn has some excellent watercolor video tutorials, she is very talented!

My sister has a tiny framed piece of art done by a friend in France and I've always wanted to replicate it somehow. The original is a landscape but what really caught my imagination was the diminutive size. I worked on a piece of watercolor paper that I trimmed to a 2" square.

I used Lawn Fawn Penelope's Blossoms and the little teacup is from My Cup of Tea. I stamped with Distress Inks and softened the images with water and a detail brush.

I'm off to finish making mom's day cards for my daughters-in-love. You can be sure this is a technique that I will return to and hopefully refine.



  1. I saw that wonderful video, too, Nancy, and have been playing, but have no results yet - you did a fantastic job!

  2. Wasn't it a great video Nancy. I love your card. The small size is just gorgeous. I must try it out.

  3. Love the video and your card is fabulous Nancy!

  4. I think this one may be my fave! Penelope's Blossoms are my current fave flowers, and I love how you placed them in the charming, and so very beautiful, Nancy! Love how you 'signed' your work, too :-)

  5. So sweet! Beautiful card! Love this technique!

  6. Absolutely stunning Nancy - I'm so impressed with this look, and the small scale is so pretty! Rx


Thanks for your comments, I love hearing from you!
