Cherry Blossoms – Tombow watercolor

IMG_8730

Online Card Classes has a class that is all about exploring different watercolor mediums. It is terrific! For this piece I used a Cherry Blossom stamp from Roi in Korea.  Stamped it in Versamark ink on Distress Watercolor cardstock and heat embossed it with Ranger Gold embossing powder.  I used Tombow Dual Brush pens and water to color in the image and the background. To finish it off, I applied Versamark ink around the edges and heat embossed them with  the same Gold embossing powder.

Cherry Blossoms and Garden Roses in Distress

fullsizerender-83I took another page from the Garden Roses and Cherry Blossoms page from Kristy Rice watercolor coloring book, copied onto Copic blending paper, and colored the flowers, leaves and branches with Copic markers (RV0000, RV00, RV91, R85, R39, G21, G24, G29, G99) .  In and around the flowers I used Distress Ink (Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain) and then spritzed with water.
