Roses (Crimson Blush)

I haven’t added to my Watercolor Flowers Series in ages but with spring around the corner…maybe it’s time! I bought these pretty roses from Penny Black and stamped them in a faded ink pad – and turned them into washy flowers. Enjoy!

It takes some practice to get loose and washy, but it’s so worth the effort!

Watercolor Flowers Series #22: Sketchy Flowers Twin Tip Markers

This beautiful Sketchy Florals stamp set from Altenew is a lot of stamps in one set- lots of florals! You can turn it any number of ways to use a few flowers or a lot of flowers….and I used a lot! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

A Copic version, trying to create a similar stone-looking background in reds…

Mother’s Day is around the corner – but this stamp could be used for the holiday, or combined with any stamp set to create a card for any time! I used Avery Elle pigment inks to stamp with; if your stamp only has red flowers, you can use red to stamp with – mine had flowers and leaves, so a yellow (mimosa) made the most sense for mine. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I nearly discarded the outside frame – then realized I had actually centered it well (which is rare!) so I tossed some loose watercolor on it and adhered both down to the card. So simple and pretty – and no waste!

Soft Watercolor Floral

The Mondo Flowers series of stamp sets at Ellen Hutson – designed by the amazing Julie Ebersole – have a bunch of different flower shapes now. And guess what? They look like a beautiful garden when they’re together! I decided to make a watercolor background out of them all, and deployed the MISTI to make it come together. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on  YouTube.

This technique would certainly work with other flowers – but these big Mondo stamps are particularly easy to paint with large open shapes. All are linked in the supply list below!

Sandy Allnock Watercolor Flowers

Yesterday on Instagram, I shared a set of cards made from these same sets, so you can see them more clearly as individual flowers…I cut 4-1/4″ square cards, with 4″ panels, fussycut the flowers and popped everything. I used the same “Lovely” sentiment set with them all.

Watercolor Flowers Series #12: Vintage roses

Watercolor Flowers Series #12: Vintage roses

 

You ARE amazing. What better than a card to tell you that?

Vintage Roses

Recently I saw a piece of fabric with a vintage design on it – roses galore, that were all a vintage brown color with pops of green for leaves. The empty space between the clumps of flowers was a soft, watercolory, distressed area that got darker at the edge of the flowers. I totally should have taken a photo, because all I have for reference is what’s in my head! See it come to live by watching the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Gotta love a sentiment like this too….so many amazing people out there we can send cards like this to!Sandy Allnock Vintage Roses

I also colored a similar card with Copics – and black ink.
