05.09.22…..Happy Monday, my stampin’ friends! Today, I’m sharing something a little different. It’s a little watercolored flower, and I decided it would be perfect for this shabby chic frame that I’ve been holding on to for years. The inspiration for the flower came from the amazing Shannon West, who shared her tutorial video on Youtube yesterday…..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmmvaVRSrHs. She watercolored a beautiful, hand-painted flower, which I absolutely adore! So…..I thought I would give it a try.
I was really happy with the flower that I painted, but then….I ran into a bit of a mishap with my Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry ink. So….I added more Daffodil Delight and Crushed Crushed around the flower, along with some splatted water drops. Even with my little mishap, I’m still excited with the way it turn out, and I can’t wait to try another one…maybe in a different color combo. Thank you bunches, Shannon West, for sharing your talent!
To create this flower, I used a 3-1/2 ” x 3-1/2 piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. Following Shannon’s tutorial, I used a Water Painter to add Fresh Freesia for the flower petals. For the center of the flower, I used Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry. To create the stem and leaf, I used Granny Apple Green and Evening Evergreen.
Once the paper was dry, I used Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere it to a slightly larger piece of Linen Specialty Paper, just to give it a bit of dimension inside the frame. (Note: There is glass over the top of my watercolored flower. Depending on what type of frame you choose, you may or may not want it framed with glass.)
For a step-by-step tutorial on painting the flower, you’ll want to watch Shannon’s Youtube video…..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmmvaVRSrHs.
