AWW Jun - Watercolor Buds

In last week’s hop, I think we can safely say that Hey There Buds was a team favorite.  And for good reason!!  This week, my version of this awesome single stamp!  I decided to go bright with it….or Brights Color Family with it!  Using my Stampin’ Write Markers, I inked up the flower in Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.  Then I gave it a quick spritz with water and stamped it on Watercolor paper.  To add a little more watercolor look to it, I dripped on a little more water using my Aquapainter.  The sentiment got the same spritzing treatment before I stamped it.  Notice that the sentiment is in a different place that on the single stamp?  Well, I actually cut it off of the flower and mounted it separately.  This gives more flexibility for using both the image and the words.  I mimicked the spots using Gorgeous Grunge on the side of the Melon Mambo base.  A little bit of Old Olive 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon to add a final accent!  I’m going to bet you’ll see some more with this stamp again this week…..might as well add it to your shopping list now!

Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
