I stamped the image with a light colored distress ink and then hit it with my watercolors. I used Antique Linen Distress ink, and honestly, I think Id like to find an even lighter one to use, but I like the distress inks for this technique because you can blend them into the watercolor to make the image appear as though it wasn't even stamped at all!
I loved playing with the different watercolors to create a unique look. The base of the flowers actually began with a mint color that, when mixed with a darker pink tone, became that gorgeous nearly purple shade with just hints of the mint in there. I love it! You can find a complete product list in the links below my post. I have also included a couple of other CAS-ual Fridays Stamp sets that would work great with this technique! Click to shop! :)
I hope you have a super spectacular Monday! It is a GORGEOUS day here in Massachusetts and I am wearing mint pants, so things are looking pretty darned good!
Have a Happy!
