I started by blending Distress Inks on a piece of watercolour paper. Here are the colours I used:
Grass: Mowed Lawn and Cracked Pistachio
Sun: Mustard Seed and Fossilized Amber. With a stencil, I applied the Wild Honey to suggest rays of the sun.
Sky: Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers
Then I splashed some water to get that splodgy effect. Next came the images and greeting - all stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black. Final touches - little drops of liquid pearls and some Stickles Black Diamond over the silhouette leaves. All of the products linked above are available from the Chocolate Baroque online store.
I've got more details of tools and products over at my blog. My team-mates have a few more vernal beauties with this stamp to inspire you before we move on to the stunning new stamps introduced by Lesley on Hochanda. Curious? Make sure you swing by the DT blog for more project ideas using these new stamps.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
