Stamps and Flowers
It is a great combo! I’m excited to be part of the Unity and Petaloo hop today. The Unity design team is playing with Petaloo flowers and our favorite Unity stamps. You should have arrived from the ever talented Joslyn, if not, all the action starts on the Unity blog.
It was really fun to see how watercolor pencils would work with the Petaloo paper flowers. Quite nice if I do say so myself. I tried two different methods and both resulted in different effects. I created a puddle of water and added the pencil to it for a softer coverage. Then, I applied the pencil directly to the flower and blended with water for bolder coverage. It is easy to add more color once the item is wet, just color lightly over the area that is damp and blend some more. For the flower centers, I dabbed the pencil in dots on top at the end and didn’t blend with water. I let them dry for awhile before adding them to the card. They are delicate when wet and the glue doesn’t work so well either.
I really LOVE this Unity sentiment kit. Can you believe it is only $10??? What a steal of a deal. I stamped the label and sentiment on the flower patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment a second time and trimmed out the bold words to pop them up.
