Fantastic florals (by Rachel)

 Hello there! Rachel here with some inspiration from the shows in October. This first one uses the stsmp called Canary Bird Rose. I think the stamp name influenced my colouring of the image done in watercolours. I thin fussycut the image and added it to a black and white background. I think this stamp will get a lot of use!


In making this canvas I used the dream petal stamp and stamped it on card and coloured it with translucent paints before fussy cutting. I added this to a circular canvas painted black that I had already decorated with flitterglu stamped images from the Gerbera and friends set which I covered with gilding flakes. I also stamped the centre of the flowers in flitterglu and added flake to them before adding to the painted florals.


In this last sample I used the Life is wonderful stamp set and the circular stencil set. Colouring was in a combination of translucent paints and watercolour pencils. 


I hope this has given you food for thought!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
