Notepads (by Gerrina)

Here is the second of Gerrina's Guest Design Team posts on The Design Team Blog this month.

This time I made some presents; two small and one large paper pad on which I stamped and coloured the front:


Stamps: Floral Notes stamp set
Versafine Onyx Black inkpad
Other: Paper pads, aquarel paper, watercolour pens, elegant writer pen, ribbon

Instructions for the smaller notepads:
Colour the flowers using watercolour markers and mist lightly with water. Stamp the images onto aquarel paper, and pull the colour into the images using a waterbrush or a brush and water. Glue some ribbon on the glued side of the paper pad and glue the aquarel paper onto the notepad.

Colour directly with the elegant writer pen on the stamp. Make sure that you do not miss anywhere. Spritz  a very light mist of water over the stamp and stamp it on a piece of aquarel paper. Work the lines with a water brush or a brush and some water. The colour will change with more or less water, and dabbing with a piece of kitchen paper before it is dry.
