When it comes to flower stamps, Altenew are some of my most favorite.
These flowers and leaves are from a new set that I received from them. I wanted to play with the color combination at Sunday Stamps so this was the perfect start. I stamped the flower with white ink and embossed them with white embossing powder on watercolor paper. The embossed lines of the images will now act as a resist to the inks I want to use. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.
I picked a variety of blues, grays and black Distress Stain. I also used a Pewter which is actually a metallic silver. When these were spritzed with water, they ran together just right to color the flowers and to add some color to the background. In a way it is like painting, adding the colors here and there just where I wanted them.
Here is the Sunday Stamps challenge.
Plus it fits the Inkspirational Recipe challenge to use three items. I used the Distressing, Flowers and Pearls since I used Liquid Pearls as accents.
