Watercoloring using my DI pads
I stamped and clear embossed the flowers onto watercolor papper. Then I used these Distress inks to color the image: wild honey, fired brick, walnut stain, forest moss and twisted citron. Finally I masked the image and sponged salty ocean DI.
As final touches I added a few micro beads to the flowers and stamped a sentiment in Norwegian (the definition of "greeting", so very versatile) and heat set it.
This is very different from what I normally make, but I'm finally being more daring using my inks.
