Blended Bloom for PPA248

April 17, 2015 4 Comments

It’s been quite a while since I played with Blended Bloom, a favorite from the Annual Catalog.  These warmer days are turning my thoughts to flowers, so it was a natural choice.  After thinking about how I wanted to use it, I remembered the PPA248 sketch that was posted yesterday and decided my idea would work perfectly with the sketch.

Blended Bloom for PPA248 from theartfulinker.com

I started with a piece of watercolor paper and stamped the image with black Staz On.  Using my Aqua Painter, I colored with Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive and Crushed Curry.  It’s amazing how much tonal variation you can achieve with this technique.

While unfortunately you can’t see it, the focal image sits on a layer of Basic Black that has been stamped with Blended Bloom inked in Versamark.  This gives a subtle damask effect to the layer.

The Vellum banner is stamped and embossed with an image from Point and Click.  While the sentiment was created using the Back to Basics Alphabet.

Have a great weekend!

    A stamper after my own heart! I adore watercoloring and plying with the Aqua Painters – (I feel like an artist) – you did a fabulous job with the coloring! Thanks for sharing your talent!

      Thanks Dawn, it was fun to pretend I was a painter. Amazing how easy starting with a stamp makes it.
