For You Bloom

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

 Broke out the inks, brushes and water bottle tonight!  Using Stampin Up Blended Bloom stamp, I first inked the stamp with Tangelo Twist and edged with Strawberry Slush then spritzed the stamp.  After stamping the image, I went back over to fill in the bloom with water/ink (and colored the center with Sahara Sand).  I heat dried and went over the image in black ink because the light outline didn't show up well...guess I did this watercolored bloom backwards!  For the center, I added some glossy glaze.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
