I played with my new STAMPlorations "Framed Solitary Rose" stamp. After stamping my image I used watercolour layering with my Gansai Tambi pan watercolors.
I placed a piece of Arches Hot Press 140# watercolor paper in my MISTI securing with my Creative Corners and then stamped my Framed Solitary Rose using Versafine pigment ink. I heat set before starting my watercolouring using layers of Gansai Tambi pan watercolours making sure each layer was dry before adding more paint with my #4 paint brush. I left my image in my MISTI until I was finished with my colouring. I used Dark Pink and Ocean Green colours. I added a watercolour wash using diluted SU Smoky Slate on my rose background. The last step was misting with shimmery spray made with Tsukineko Frost white paint and water.
Letting my image dry in my MISTI keeps the layer nice and flat. I removed my main image and trimmed along the stamped black border. I then die cut a SU Shimmery White paper border layer using my new CUTplorations ATC Tag Builder Die, which has a cool beveled edge. Used SU Whisper White paper for my CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Die Cut border.
Next I stamped my Birds of Paradise sentiment in my MISTI using Versafine black ink and then attached each layer. My Card base is SU Whisper White Thick CS. My main image was popped up using 3M foam tape. I love the Clean and Simple design and hope you do too.
