Watercolored Sunflowers #18 AAA Cards

AAA Cards Game 18
Play with Watercolors



 I can't believe it's game #18 at AAA Cards already and we're playing with watercoloring some more! I'm still getting acquainted with the technique and have not moved to paints yet. So today I've used an outline stamp (as opposed to a solid image stamp). With Distress Inks applied directly to the stamp in the colors you see - onto watercolor paper. Again I'm using the aqua brush to push the colors inward from the edge to fill in the the image colors. This is quick and easy. Why make it difficult if time is limited? The sunflowers are hanging on and still beautiful here in New England. Soon it will be the reds, burnt orange and browns of fall.

You inspire me Angela to pull out my watercolor markers. I do love how the flowers look watercolored. Brilliant job. My neighbors have sunflowers as tall as their gutters.
