This is my second post today, if you are looking for my Art Impression post click here.
Today I have a project featuring some new stamps available at Crafter's Companion! Sheena Douglass is releasing a few great Day of the Dead stamps! My project features the flowers from the Floral Fiesta stamp set. I am also entering this in Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!
These flowers can be used for any occasion, and I used them on a wall decor. I found a wood box frame thing, on clearance at the craft store. It's basically a wood frame with both the front and back with a thin sheet of wood, it was painted black and had a fancy sentiment of some sort on top.
I placed the box over some water color card stock and traced around it with a pencil. Then cut out the square with my trimmer. Next I scribbled Orange, Aquamarine and Heather Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers on a palette, added water and painted the colors all around on my water color square.
While that was drying I stamped the flowers several times. Then I used my Spectrum Nori Markers to color them all up. I used BT7, CR11, CR10, HB2, HB3, IB2, IB3, LV3, OR2, OR3. Then I fussy cut all the flowers.
When the water coloring was dry I stamped the sentiment from Sheena Douglass Taste of India Mandala stamp set. Next I used double sided adhesive to adhere the water color square to the box frame. Last I added the flowers.
Here is a picture of it hanging on the wall!
