Today is my day to share a project on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog. With all the cold we have been having, something about flowers is calling my name. So Lovely Blooms was a fun choice that I hadn’t used in a while.
I recently got some Brusho Crystal Colours and this was a great time to give them a go. I played with all the colors in my 5 color pack (available from Stampin’ Up). On Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper, I stamped the jar with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I filled the jar with water using my paint brush and then sprinkled on the Prussian Blue Brusho. It is super cool to watch the color spread and move. I did the same with the flower and the leaves. The flower uses Gamboge, Brilliant Red and Yellow and the leaves use Moss Green and Yellow. Just put on the water and sprinkle…it is that easy. I had my 11 yo help on the leaves because he thought it was so interesting. Once everything was dry, I cut the flowers and the leaves with the coordinating dies. For the background wash, I sprinkled a little bit of powder into a palette and added water to create the paler version of the colors. I love that you can use this in multiple ways too. I pulled a sentiment from Simply Relative…such a must have set! You can’t see it from this picture but I actually attached the watercolor panel to a pale yellow card base for a sweet surprise when you open the card.
I hope you enjoy this floral burst of color today! Make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs blog for daily inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping in and I’ll see you soon!
