Playing along with the Essentials for Ellen Pin Site Challenge and I made two cards using the beautiful Mondo Magnolia stamp.
For my first card, I stamped the bigger flower in Verafine Ink and clear embossed it on some watercolor paper. Then I used some Inkadinkado Stamping Mask paper to mask off the flower so I could work on the background. I lightly blended the Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide on the paper and some Antique Linen Distress Ink to stamp the background font stamp. I added some splatters using Gathered Twig Distress Ink.
To watercolor the flowers, I used a blue Winsor & Newton Watercolor Markers to color the flower. These markers are similar to the Tombows Brush Markers since they have dual tips but I found that the pigment in the Winsor & Newton was a lot more concentrated and provided a deeper color.
I stamped and die cut the inner part of the flower and used English Lavender and light lavender to watercolor the flower and adhered it to the card with some foam tape for dimension.
For my second card I used the same set from Essentials by Ellen, but this time used the no-line watercolor technique.
I stamped the Magnolia on some watercolor paper in Antique Linen Distress Ink. I used some Zig markers to color in the flower. Once it was dry, I took the dark blue Zig and drew a thin line and used my brush to make it thicker.
