Everything Eleanor + Aqua Painter
I first stamped the swirl stamp in Old Olive. You can see that the stamp didn't set super inky and some parts are a bit light, so I took my Aqua Painter and filled in just with the ink already on the paper. I think this really makes the background look hand painted.
Next I stamped the flowers. They are very easy to color because they have already filled in the darker areas with extra ink. I didn't need to add any more ink when coloring.
I stared by doing the areas that are light, so that the brush wouldn't have too much ink on it. I then cleaned off the brush and did the shaded areas. You need to keep the Aqua Painter pretty dry because of the fine detail. I cut the flowers out and attached them to the card with dimentionals.
I love the woodgrain background and the linen thread and use them all the time. They add such nice texture, don't you think?
