Anyway here it is. We were asked to use Spring Blooms as our theme. I know the Onion Bloom stamp from Magenta is not really a spring flower. But I used fresh greens and yellows to give it a touch of spring.
For the main image I used yellow and green brush markers directly on the stamp and spritzed lightly with water before stamping onto white card.
I love the effects you get using this brush less watercolour technique.
For the background I used a resist known as Ghosting. I first came across it in the lovely book Magenta published a few years ago called "Paper Magic". You stamp your image using white pigment ink all over the card and allow to dry or heat set. Then blend 3 or 4 colours of pigment inks over the top. I used a couple of yellow and green Colorbox Cat's eyes. They are great for this technique. But alternatively you can use a bit of sponge. Rub firmly over the top with some kitchen towel and your images will appear. I used another Magenta stamp for this called "Shadow Branch" but any solid image would work quite well.
A bit of ribbon and a few pearls just add the finishing touches.
Have a good week everyone.
