Stop & smell the flowers, watercolor roses technique

I was busy stamping all weekend.  Stay tuned because I will be posting this week.  Well I have been cherishing these pictures for a while and was waiting for the right technique to create a page.  Thanks to Patty Bennett, I created a perfect and beautiful rose to match Jordan’s pictures.  The rose was created with the watercolor rose technique which I am going to show my stampers group.  I will also be showing this technique to our Sparkledaisies meeting, leader Marlayne Hardy.  I sure hope to wow them!  By the way, at Josee Smuck’s Inkies meeting, there were a few who asked me where I had these pictures done.  It’s a studio called Magenta Studio , in Montreal

Material used:  shimmery white cardstock, pink pirouette textured cardstock in 12×12, pretty in pink 8.5×11, whisper white textured cardstock, Bella Rose designer paper, vellum cardstock, white pearls from the pretties kit, 2 way glue, dazzling diamonds, whisper white taffeta ribbon,  chipboard, white craft ink, ink refills in pink pirouette and pretty in pink, aquapainter, eyelet border punch and naturally serif letters with my big shot.



1.  Take a piece of shimmery white cardstock

2.  Stamp your image with White Craft ink

3.  Apply clear embossing powder on stamped image

4.  Heat the image with your embossing tool

5.  Spray your entire image with a spritzer bottle filled with water

6.  Use a lid ex.  cool whip lid to apply a dab of reinker of your color choice. ( You can use different colors)

7.  Take your aquapainter and dip it in the dab of reinker.

8.  Touch stamped paper with the aquapainter (the color will spread on the wet stamped image)

9.  You can repeat step 7 and 8 with another color and can go over the image more then once if you want to create more colors ( I used pink pirouette, pretty in pink)

10.  Let your stamped image dry standing up (the extra water will drip down)  It doesn’t really matter because you will cut the image after.  It will take approx. 30 min for your image to dry

Voilà! you are done…
