Thinking of you


Hi everybody
                      This week I'm sharing a card featuring one of my favorite flowers... sketched Tulips(which I won during a blog hop at STAMPlorations)! I just got it in the mail last  to last week , A big Thanks to Shery and have been itching to ink it up.  My card  features mixed media art, layers,  text stamping, watercolors techniques, gelatos, and wooden block stamping. And I am very much inspired by Shirley Bees and Shery's work at Stamploration!!!
  I stamped the tulips several times (masking the blooms) in black archival ink on a watercolor paper. Then spritz some water for water coloring and  using gelatos and for the stems I used water colors( wet on wet technique). For the center part, I hand cut the upper part of tulips and then die cut it using label framelits.  I once again stamped the image on an another paper  and wanted to highlight that part, So I opted to fussy-cut the image and popped it up.
Here is the closer  view:
  To create my BG, I used  text stamping in a book print style on an another watercolor paper. Then  I blended some gelatos and water spritz them and gently rubbed with my finger. I wanted a lighter effect. Before drying the paper I stamped with a wooden leaf block using distress ink. I inked my stamp, spritz with water and then stamp.  It gives a watercolored look to the image without any of the work.  Super simple and fun to do! ( I have several wooden stamps since my childhood and do you know how old are they.......its my Grand Maternal Mother collections who gifted me......How Amazing and give thanks to her!!!!).


I  stamped my sentiment, layered it all up and added a felt border, some burlap piece for texture behind the image, a butterfly charm and gems to finish.
Hope you like my creation!

Whisper white CS, Textured watercolor sheet, Textured bottle green colored felt snippet
