Spring Watercolors

By Monica Edwards

Spring is fast approaching and I love all the different shades of greens you can see.  Some are dark and true some with a pinch of yellows.  So I crafted a card centered around Spring with a twist to show you how to use your Ink Potion No. 9 blending solution to create a watercolor effect perfect for handmade Spring flowers.

Step 1. Stamp ink pad directly onto your craft mate (image 1)
Step 2. Spray Ink Potion No. 9 onto freshly stamped ink (image 2)
Step 3. Take your chosen stamp and stamp onto the ink and stamp on desired paper. (image 3)   For this flower I chose to stamp onto patterned paper for more color and texture (image 4)

Flower Tutorial
Step 1 Fussy cut your stamped image
Step 2. Cut between each petal to the center
Step 3. Take some tweezers to hold each petal and twist
Step 4. Layer each flower staggered onto one another and glue

Here is an example of the 2nd flower I made and you can see how the image looks against plain white paper.  It allows you to see the watercolor look more clearly.

Below is my completed card with all the other added elements
