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.
