Soft Watercolor with Heat Embossed Flowers

Happy Friday, everyone!

Today I am playing with a new stamp set from Simon Says Stamp’s latest release. The Spring Flowers stamp set is one that I designed for the release and I was so excited to ink it up and use the images in the way I was envisioning  while I was illustrating them for the first time.

Soft Watercolor with Heat Embossed Flowers

I painted an under-layer of color before stamping the flowers and leaves, and then heat embossed the stamped images to create a stark white outline of flowers. This helped me be able to see the white flowers while I painted them, as opposed to having the white outlines on just white watercolor paper.
