Hello everyone… This is my second post for today 🙂 And still Spring is my inspiration when I created these 3 CAS Sympathy Cards.

I am in love with the STAMPlorations – Blossom Overture Stamp Set. This stamp set has beautiful flowers and sentiments that are great for making card for any occasion. On the background, I used the Nestled Circles ARTplorations Stencil with Distress Ink using Monoprinting With Stencil technique. Head over to STAMPlorations Blog to read the full post and tutorial 🙂

But I would like to share with you here how I created those roses… So…about a week ago I received a pack of 30 Watercolor Colored Pencils and I have been wanting to try them 🙂 And this project is my first time using them.

First, I stamped the flowers 3 times on a watercolor paper using VersaFine Onyx Black with Mini MISTI.

I dried the stamped rose images with craft heater, but this VersaFine ink dries fast without this step. Next step, I colored the roses by adding the color just the part where the darkest shade is gonna be.

And then using a small round brush (or use brush that comes with this pack) I turned the colored images into watercolored images. I wet the tip of the brush, not to much water needed, and then gently I pulled the color pigment from the bottom to top to fill all the mage with color. I did the same way with the stalk and leaves.

Check out how beautiful the colors blended and turn out into watercolor paint… oh… I AM FALLING IN LOVE WITH THESE WATERCOLOR PENCILS at the first try!!! They become one of my favorite coloring mediums already!

I use micro-tip scissors to fussy cut the roses to use on these cards together with the sentiments that I stamped them with Memento Dew Drop Inks. I finished the card with white pearl gems.
