Love This and Ink Sale

I've been having fun with some of my newer stamp sets.  I really love this Charmed set from Altenew.  It's a 4x6 set, so a little easier on your pocket book, and features this floral cluster that has all sorts of great possibilities.

For this card I first stamped in on some watercolor cardstock using Fairy Dust ink from WPlus9.  I wanted something very light that I could use as a guide.  I also knew that I would go back and stamp in black, so I left the stamp in place on my MISTI.

Using that faint stamped image, I added loose watercoloring using Dylusions Ink Sprays.  The sprays have such bold vibrant hues and watercolor beautifully.

Once the watercoloring was dry, I took my panel back to the MISTI and stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink.

To add some texture and interest, I used a journaling pen to add details to the leaves.

For a really bold and graphic element, but to keep the panel nice and flat, penciled in a line and then colored the area to the left with a black Copic marker.  I masked off that colored portion of the card and then added gold splatter.  Finally, I added a sentiment, also from the Charmed set.

One last thing, just wanted to let you know that there's a 20% off sale on ink pads and reinkers happening at Ellen Hutson today through Sunday with code INKY18.  If you are trying to round up a collection or need to stock up, now's a great time!  This link will take you directly to the ink section.
