Happy Thursday, today is Tutorial Thursday over at My Creative Time. This is where we "try" to share a technique with you. I say try because sometimes it's hard to explain a technique...hopefully I'll be able to! :)
The technique I'm going to share with you is masking and no line watercoloring.
First of all I wanted the sentiment to intruped the image.
So I first stamped the sentiment on the die cut rectangle and masking paper.
Then I cut out the sentiment on the masking paper.
Next I placed the sentiment mask over the stamped sentiment.
Once I determined which flower is the front flower, that will be the first flower stamped. I stamped the flower over the sentiment masking, also stamping same flower on masking paper. I used Distress Ink in a very light color so I could barely see it.
After I cut out the flower from the masking paper I placed over the stamped flower on the rectangle. Then I chose which flower would be behind the front flower and stamped it.
I repeated the same process as the sentiment and the flower image for the existing flowers.
Once all the stamping was completed I was left with image of flowers behind each other.
The next thing to do was choose the colors of distress inks and smooch them on my palette. With watered down ink I painted each petal individually and not next to each other until they were dry. I added another layer of paint to each petal for more depth. I made sure that each layer was dry before adding more.
