Hello again! How about starting off the week with a watercolored Azalea? Probably one of Power Poppy's best selling stamps, but I'm just guessing. They're so pretty!
I made this card for someone amazing, as you might guess. Stamped in Ranger Distress Tea Dye ink and watercolored with an old never-been-used set of SU's Watercolor Wonder Crayons. Do they even still sell them? Hanging my head... I've had two sets of those watercolor crayons for years and just now used them for the first time. What is up with that? They're actually very nice watercolor paints.
I picked up ink from the crayons with a wet brush. The progression of color on the blooms is Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, and Ruby Red. Interesting how it turned out with those colors. Garden Green on the leaves. When all was dry I did the stamen filaments with Gansai Tambi white paint. Since the image was so soft I kept the rest of the card soft and simple, as well. More details in the recipe below my signature.
Have a happy day and I'll see you again soon!
