Caroline with you today to share a new project. I love stamp coloring and I also love Lindy’s magical powders. I LOVE to use them when I stamp flowers! When I do, I always do a bunch because it’s something that takes a lot of time, you know! That way, I have some all ready when I want to create something.
I started with a Strathmore watercolor paper, it’s the best paper when you want to watercolor. I used embossing powder Angel wings mauve and Magical kit Victorian bouquet.
I mixed a tiny amount of powder with water in a pan. You don’t need a lot of powder to obtain vivid colors. I embossed a few flowers to be ready to start coloring in a row.
I began with my clean wet brush. I covered all the flower with just a bit of water to make the color blend in the paper after. Always start with just a tiny amount of color like I did. You can come over to make darker effects later.
I waited a few seconds to let the paper absorb the pink and I then went over it again to add shading. You can repeat this step as much as you need to. Just wait a bit to let the coats blend into the paper.
I did 3 coats of pink to shade my flower. This is Rambling rose pink from the Victorian bouquet magical kit.
I made another one with 2 shades, using Magnolia Magenta gold and Rambling rose pink with the same technique as above.
Now I have a lot of beautiful flowers to begin a card or a layout 🙂
The closer look shows well the nice blending I got with my watercolor paper and the magical powders!
Thank you for being here, see you soon with another technique!
