Just paint a flower!!! (by Maria)

Hi , dear stamping mates,

Today I want to show you two stamped and painted cards. On the first card you can see, the rose of the new Briar Rose Butterfly and the yellow Iris from the Harebell Butterfly stamp sets. On the second card you can see, the Rose and the two small roses  from the Pretty Birdcage

I took two white papers 15cm x 15cm (5.51 x 5.51 inches) on the first one I stamped the big flower with black archival ink, I also stamped it on mask paper, cut it out and masked the big flower on the white paper with it. I stamped the yellow iris 4 times around the flower, then  the real work began, I took some watercolour paints and did the wet on wet technique. These flower stamps were just ideal for this technique. It was really the first time I did  this technique, and I hope the result is okay? The second card I did the same way. I used yellow, orange and greens, my favorite colours. As a finishing touch I gave some white accents with my white gelly pen. I hope you like my cards and hope that I inspired you to make a really painted work of ART. It's such fun!

As you see I couldn't stop, the small cards in the middle are made with the same technique. The  background I 've made with the sponge technique and distress ink, and I used the stamps from the same stampset. Have a lot of fun, as I did!

Greetings and till soon

  9. stunning work Maria - these are gorgeous - just so fabulous xx

  10. Very striking indeed with your use of those bright colours combined with black. My favourite is the first of the small cards with your grasses either side getting progressively taller in line with the image panel. I particularly like the way you highlighted the brilliant orange of the rose hips by your use of orange for the panel's mat as well as the card base.

  11. I love all the bright citrus colours you have used on these cards, especially the first two, and all those extra touches of white pen to highlight which brings out the colours even more. The backgrounds are all beautiful too, and I like the shape of the die you have used on the last four images. x

  12. Oh, wow! Wat een mooie werken! Weer een super genot om naar te kijken! Wat combineer jij die bloemen en kleuren toch mooi!

  13. Beautiful. The white in the background really shows off the central image
