Time to Bloom...

Hello Friends

Today I am sharing my latest project for AALL & Create.  

I used the beautiful flower/domino stamp (#149) from the latest release by Tracy Evans.  It is a great size stamp to use with DL sized cards but I wanted something a little larger.

The base is 6.1/2" square of Watercolour card and I used my Watercolour Paints by 13@arts.  They are highly pigmented and retain their colour beautifully when diluted with water.  I wet the base card and just 'dropped' the colour in and just let if flow.

I stamped the image two times onto card, coloured two of  the flowers, again with the paints.  I fussy cut one of the flowers and ripped around the second coloured flower, leaving some of the base stamping intact.

Once the paint was dry I stamped onto the base card.

I added the torn card, lining it up over the stamped image and layered up the flower, adding some Glossy Accents the the centre of the flower to make it pop.   To finish off I added some coloured splatters using the different colours of paint that I used to colour the base and flower.

If you wish to buy any of the various releases of AALL & Create stamps you can find the worldwide stockists HERE.

I am adding this to Craft Stamper January Take It, Make It Challenge here.

Thanks so much for your visit, I hope to see you again next week.

Hugs, Anne xx
