Thanks for Jane's Doodles



Happy Friday!

Sharing a card that was up over at the Jane's Doodles blog yesterday.

I thought I would show you how I created the flowers.  It's four steps:



First, I stamped the flower image, from Doodle Flowers II, with white pigment ink around the edges of a piece of kraft card stock.

Second, the bottom portion of the flowers was colored with a Derwent Inktense pencil.

Next, I used a waterbrush to activate the watercolor and spread it to the end/top of the flowers.

Finally, I went re-stamped the flower images with the white ink to punch up the outlines since some of the watercoloring gets into the outline of the flowers.

It's really an easy process.  The hardest part for me is lining up the images for the second stamping, but to be honest, you really don't have to do that.  I like the extra oomph, but it would look just fine without.

I added an inlaid die cut sentiment.  I didn't want to use white cardstock since it looked too jarring, so I pressed my white ink pad into some kraft cardstock and die cut it from that.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  15. You are so right, it's not necessary, but that extra stamping of white for your flowers really amps it up. So typical of your style, Miriam, you always go for those little details that make such a difference!

  17. I just love the look of pencils on kraft! So pretty, Miriam! Try a white gel pen for outlining the original image rather than re-stamping. I find it much easier ;).
