MFT Guest Blogger - Watercolored Scribble Roses

I'm back today with a post I have over on the MFT blog.

Whether stamped, die cut or colored, the Scribble Roses stamp set is just gorgeous.  My project today features these stunning images heat embossed and watercolored.

I began with a piece of watercolor card stock trimmed to 3 3/4 x 5 inches.  I prepped the paper with an anti-static tool then started placing the flowers on my card stock.  Once I had an arrangement that I was happy with, I picked up all of the stamps at once on the same acrylic block.  I inked them with Versamark ink and covered the stamped images with white embossing powder.  I did the same thing with the leaves, then I heat set all of the images at once.

Now, we get to have fun!  Using several Zig Markers, I scribbled randomly over the flowers and leaves, then I sprayed them with water.  Using a heat tool, I moved the water and color around.  How’s that for a simple watercolor technique?  I’m a CAS stamper, I don’t like to fuss with things that take too much time (or make too much of a mess).  If you are like me, you will love this technique. 

To finished off the card, I added the watercolored panel to a card base using a lot of adhesive.  (The paper was quite warped, even after sitting under a heavy book).  I heat embossed a sentiment from the Thankful Leaves stamp set and added that that to the card using foam tape.  Lastly I added some sequins to finish off the design!

It's truly and honor to be a Guest Blogger for My Favorite Things.  I hope you’ve enjoyed my posts as much as I’ve enjoyed creating my projects for you!
