Altenew Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory | Watercolored with Distress Inks | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory | Watercolored with Distress Inks | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0
I started by stamping my images with distress inks. After that I took a waterbrush to spread the ink and play with the stamped image a little to make it look like a watercolour painting.

The twig/branch is painted freehand. I heat embossed the sentiment onto black cardstock and popped it on one corner with foam tape.

I really like how the "faux painting" looks. I hope you like it as well.

Erum, the glorious color of your morning glories are just as I remember them from our garden when I was a child. Thanks for the lovely card and great memory it inspired.

Annalisa Young said...

Well I know what I'm going to have to do with my layering stamps next. This is stunning. Possibly most impressive is how you managed to make the branches look perfectly in sync with the whole painting. I just know I would make a mess of that part. :D Thanks for sharing this lovely idea. I can't wait to try it out!
