Hello Crafters!

Can you even believe it’s almost October?

I’m in denial. I don’t want summer to be over.

Though it does give me an excuse to use bold color. Like I need one right?

I haven’t had a chance to get the new Cosmos set inky yet and it’s been on the top of my list of things to use.

Me and flowers are just like peas and carrots. They make me an absurd amount of happy.

After I got my flowers stamped and masked I started  painting my watercolor paper with clean water and then dropping in a few different colors of distress oxides. Once this was dry I wanted to fill up the background a little bit more. A really easy way to do this is tone on tone stamping. It adds interest without taking away from the main focal  point.

I lightly inked up my cosmo stamp with distress oxide ink then spritzed it with a water bottle 2-3 times from about 4-5 inches away. The more water you use the more abstract the stamping. I wiped away any areas I didn’t want to stamp with a baby wipe before stamping the image down on the background. I used several colors to do this in different areas. Once that was done I spattered on some gold perfect pearls for some shine.

I used copic markers to add some shading to the black outline flowers. I love how the background adds multiple colors of shading to each petal. Seriously, all the heart eyes!

Normally I’d say you can watch the entire card in the video below but…the camera gremlins got me so it’s *almost* the entire card :/
