Join me for some water coloring with Altenew's Persain Motifs!
The final card. Now let me share the sweat and tears that went into it! It's all fun and games until your Wink of Stella burps out a glob of glitter! Arr!
So, I'm upstairs in my Dining Room nearest the Air Conditioner because it's the Hottest Day of the Year!
Ear buds in and watching Grey's Anatomy and relaxing with some mindless water coloring! Iced Coffee by my side, life is good right!
Pen Pal Maria Rodriguez orders a new stamp last month and tells me it's Altenew's Persain Motifs! Whaat! I say! A stamp that's on my long Wish List because it's so lovely! A dream to color I was sure! Just like Maria she offered to stamp some in Memento for Copic coloring and on Canson Water Color Paper to water color. Isn't she the Bee's Knees! What a Doll!
So here we are with one finished flower. I wet one petal at a time with a clean paint brush of water and added my darkest shade of pink from my Akashiya Sai Water Color Brush to the base of the petal and let the water do it's work! Then I took the lighter pink brush to the bottom of the petal and blend the two colors. Many times adding clean water to the entire petal for a full blend. Pretty!
I couldn't wait for the image to dry so I could add some Wink of Stella. Not too far into that task and the darn Wink of Stella decided to burp out a big blob of glitter. Ugh! I stared at it! I was so discouraged! Knowing it's just fluid and glitter I decided to wick it up with a tissue the best I could. Then I took a clean water brush and tried my best to continue spreading the damn stuff around!
By now it's getting late and I'm tired and ugly! I attach a lovely Neat & Tangled Hello Die with Tombo Mono Adhesive and sadly get it all over the place! I had to add Glossy Accents to the die to conceal the mess. That's ok, that was a very pretty accent! Phew! I think I need some sleep!
Instagram Buddies go the 411 as it was all happening. They're a great bunch of friends there to encourage! Like I said, Maria sent me a stack of these stamped images so me and my Wink of Stella will have to give this another go! You'll see us back here soon and the entertainment is all on me! Have a great day Stampers!
