You are awesome!
Sometimes you just need that reminder or want to share it with someone else so I made this little 4" x 6" piece of art that I could put in our guest room. I love how it turned out. It's almost magic how the highlighting of the flowers happens with this technique. Here's how I created the project.
I started off by using PITT® Artist Pen Black #199 as ink to stamp a flower image onto a 4" x 6" piece of watercolor paper.
Next, I used Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil #126 to color in the areas of the flowers that I wanted shaded.
While that dried, I mixed together about a 1/8" chunk of Guava Gelatos®, a Palette Knife full of Gel Medium, and a small spritz of water.
I then painted it onto the shadow stamp and stamped it onto my flower.
I really love the irregularity of the Gelatos® and how the watercolor pencils pop through.
Next, I stamped some leaves with May Green #170 PITT® Artist Pen and water colored them in with a Kiwi Gelatos®. I also used Art GRIP®Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil #147 and #153 to color in the blue background and then activated it with water. Lastly, I added a sentiment that was stamped and embossed with black embossing powder and slipped it into the frame.
