Hello there, today’s challenge comes from CaseThisSketch.blogspot.co.uk with creative sketch CTS#156 for us, designed by team member Michele Ferguson.

These pretty flowers are from the Helping Me Grow stamp set, in the Spring/Summer Catalogue. The set featured two large flower stamps, I’ve chosen the daisy looking flower for this card. (I’m not good with flower names – Sorry!) The flowers are very natural looking and I enjoyed colouring them in using my Aqua Painter and ink from our ink pads.

I stamped the flower in the Basic Grey Archival ink, onto Watercolour paper. Then started adding colour from the lightest to the darkest colour. Watercolour paper is amazing, you can keep adding more and more colour and the paper holds firm. You will not get the same results as I have if you use Whisper White or Very Vanilla card stock, because you do not have the build up of fibres that soak up the water.

Here’s the inside of the card where I’ve just stamped a small portion of the image in the bottom corner. I must tell you that I stamped on Very Vanilla card stock, but I had to keep the water to a minimum and work very quickly. The colour is not as deep and dark as the front of the card, but as I said before, you really can’t work the painting too much on this type of card stock or it will start breaking up.
