Scribble flowers

Another lucky find at the Local stamp store sale, this stamp is mounted on wood. I was thinking of coloring directly on the stamp and then stamping but instead I went with water coloring after stamping using my Spectrum Aqua markers, by applying them to my acrylic stamp mount and then using a water brush to pick up the color, I ended with a little clear sparkle pen.


After it was dry I mounted it onto brown cardstock and the wrapped it all in twine and threaded it through my tag to attach it.  The added gems were a find at the stamp store in Missouri.

Connie

I've always loved this stamp so much and you've colored it exactly perfectly! The loose watercolor with sparkle looks fabulous! Cute with the angle, the twine and tag. What fun, Connie!
