If you are newish to my blog, you may not know yet how much I love making my own patterned papers with ink and stamps.
There is one particular image in the December Stamp of the Month set, Thoughtful Flowers, that was calling for me to create this background paper.
I simply randomly stamped the image using Black Memento Ink, and then used my waterbrush and Crystal Blue ink to paint the areas around the flowers. Gives it a soft watercolour effect.
The darker flowers on the sentiment piece were also painted using a waterbrush, but then I also used a blender pen to bring in the darker shade of the same ink to add a little colour variation and shading.
Love the look, so pretty.
Happy creating! :)
