Watercolor with Distress inks and whimsical flowers

I really loved how this turned out.
Starting with Strathmore 140lb cold press watercolor paper I started stamping my images from the Altenew set Whimsical Flowers I colored the center with a wild honey Tim Holtz Distress marker and dabbed salty ocean around the petals. I then stamped it in the center of the paper. As I worked I used my water brush to paint each flower and blend the colors sometimes touching my brush to the ink pad if I needed a little more color. I created a mask for each stamp used with masking paper. Using the mask I stamp the rest if the images painting them as I went. It is very important to let each area you work up against dry to keep the colors from mixing and bleeding. The leaves are stamped and painted in peeled paint. The Sentiment is from Essentials by Ellen Mondo Magnolia and stamped in Tom Holtz Black Soot. Thanks so much for stopping in.
