Penny Black Watercolored "Bejeweled"


This is my first card using my new Penny Black "Bejeweled" stamp.  I placed my stamp in my MISTI and then colored the stamp with my Zig Markers, spritzed with water lightly, closed my MISTI to stamp exactly where I wanted onto my Arches 140# Cold Press Paper.  I then took my aqua painter and lightly spread the watercolors on the image.  I added a few darker colors with Zig markers for more shading.  I loved the results.  I added pink splatters and then sponged the edges and around the flower image with distress inks.  A very easy one layer card.  I stamped my image 4 times with my MISTI to get great coverage.  Always a challenge on cold press paper.

Here are the Challenges I am entering.  Enjoy!

STUNNING! Love this image and it's perfect for this technique. Isn't the Misti awesome?? So great to be able to stamp several times to get full coverage on cold press w/c paper. Love the distressing too. Great job Nancy! xx

Ooh! What a pretty flower, Nancy! Such lovely shading! MISTI is certainly a wonderful tool! Especially for stamping on watercolor paper.

Love how this turned out. It looks like an original watercolor painting. Great idea to sponge the edges to give it a natural framed look. This is a lovely card!

Good for you, doing a one layer card - I find them so hard to do! Lovely watercolour look and great sponging to set it off.

What a beautiful flower Nancy, love how the sprritzing has left a soft edge to the stamping.
Thanks for sharing at STAMPlorations this month. :)

Nancy, this is amazing! So soft and pretty. I never would have thought to use the MISTI for coloring and misting--thanks for the tip and the gorgoeus example!
