For my project today I created an Autumn Birthday card using today's Release set Floral Harvest Background Cling Stamp. I can't even tell you how much fun I had coloring this stunning background designed by Amy Tedder with Faber-Castell Gelato's and Pitt Brush Markers.
I stamped theFloral Harvest Background Cling Stamp with Black India Ink onto Canson Watecolor Cold Press Paper - 140lb, 300g weight. This is my favorite watercolor paper for stamping as it has a very smooth surface. India Ink Black is a Super Quick Drying ink perfect for using watercolor techniques with ,as the ink will not run when you use watercolors on the image.
Next I scribbled my gelatos onto my waxed paper pallette and then using my Faber- Castell waterbrush I picked up a variety of colors and painted them nto the gorgeous Floral Harvest Pattern. It was a blast.
To add some more controlled depth to the colored image, I used my Pitt Artist Pens (Brush Tip) to add shadows. Then I stamped the "Enjoy Your Day" sentiment from Let Your Soul Sing into the banner area. To complete my Birthday Card I stamped the Happy Birthday Sentiment onto the Canson Watercolor Paper with VersaMagic - Hint of Pesto, die cut and embossed the image with Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight. Next I watercolor washed the decorative edges of the die cut image to make it pop a bit off the background.
Here is a close up view of my card.
