Hello Everyone ~ pink and green make the perfect Feminine Watercolor Forever Blossoms creation today.
My massage felt so good yesterday. I have been having issues with my hip and knee. The therapist did some deep tissue massage on it as the muscles and tendons were very tight. In the afternoon the ladies came here and we had game day. We played Farkle which is a dice game. It was fun and someone different won for each game. I have no plans for today so I may do some cleaning and then play in my studio. I do need to start reading my book club book so I will take some time to read.
The Forever Blossoms stamp set is a great set for the faux watercolor technique. I decided to use pink and green as that is one of my favorite color combinations. Using my stamping tool, I inked up the image using Blushing Bride and Mossy Meadow markers. I used the stamping tool as I knew I would need to stamp it more than once since I was using watercolor paper. Once I had my image stamped so that it was clear, I used my aqua painter to then blend the image. I tried to stay away from the edge of the image so the outline was still crisp. When I was happy with the watercoloring, I set it aside to dry. Once it was dry, I mounted the panel onto a piece of Blushing Bride card stock. A piece of the Polka Dot tulle ribbon was wrapped around the bottom portion and a bow was tied. The card base is Mossy Meadow and the front was embossed using the Subtle embossing folder. The image panel was then added to the card front using dimensionals. Here is the pretty Feminine Watercolor Forever Blossoms creation.

The faux watercolor technique is one of my favorite ones. This example uses the large rose image from Beautiful Day. Here is another idea using an open flower from the retired Falling Flowers stamp set. Check out these beautiful butterflies I colored using the faux watercolor technique.
