3 Cards from One Magenta Stamp Set & Stencil

Loved playing with these – so versatile. First card background is with acrylic paints on watercolor paper. I applied crinkled plastic wrap to surface while wet and let it sit for a few minutes, then removed it to create the crackle look. Applied Archival ink on edge of stencil to create the border.   Stamped leaf images and colored with Faber Castell Pitt Pens. Stamped flowers and sentiment on separate piece of watercolor paper and colored flowers with Faber Castell Pitt Pens, cut out and attached . Detail work with white pen. Attached to card base.

Second card is done with water based sprays on watercolor paper.  I removed spray through stencil with a baby wipe then dried completely. Stamped and embossed leaf images. Stamped sentiment. Stamped and embossed flowers on separate piece of watercolor paper , cut out and attached.

Third card background is with acrylic paints on watercolor paper. Stamped stem images with Archival ink.  Stamped and embossed leaves, flower  and sentiment.  Detail with white pen.  Added texture paste through stencil for dots.
