Hi everyone! Switching gears from cute to floral! I love this new clear stamp set from poppystamps! So pretty gold embossed and watercolored with Karin Markers, water and a paintbrush.
I stamped the poppystamps Picnic Plaid clear stamp using the Tim Holtz Travel Stamp Platform on Hobby Lobby Masters Touch watercolor card. I love using this stamp platform for big stamps because I can leave the stamp on the lid then take just the lid/stamp to the sink to wash it after stamping! So easy to clean up that way.
I stamped the plaid with Taylored Expressions Premium Dye Ink, first in Pink Champagne and then to get it a little pinker, I inked and stamped it again with Cupcake. I was trying to match the Karin markers I used for watercoloring.
I heat embossed the image and sentiment with gold embossing powder. Then started coloring!
My Karin Markers (from Poland) were a gift from an amazing, dear, friend back in March. (the dreaded birthday was awesome this year) It looks like Simon Says Stamp is bringing them in but nothing in stock yet. To see my other card I colored with them, select my Karin Markers category over on the right. You can use any watercolors to color stamp images though and I plan to do some more with this beautiful image!
Karin Markers are Brush Pens and beautiful for Modern Brush Calligraphy! I’ve been practicing on that when I sit down at night… pretty fun! I’ve always enjoyed lettering but have only pursued it a couple times and never kept up with it. Here’s hoping I do better this time. It’s fun to do with the grandkids also.
ok – well, I’ll wrap this up and say, thanks for coming over! Hope you feel like coloring now! I need to keep coloring/practicing! Don’t look at my coloring to close! lol
