Friendship Blooms

I've had these tins in my basket for a while and decided I needed to use one! I still have 6 left! I used the Sale-A-Bration set called Friendship Blooms for this image.

I started with the flower image. I stamped it using Basic Black on Whisper White Cardstock. I then stamped the same image on a Post-it Note. I cut the image on the Post-it out and covered the image on my Whisper White. I then used the swirl image and went right over the flower image to get the swirls as close to the flower as possible. Neat huh?! This technique is called masking - because you create a mask with the Post-it.

To color the image I used my Aqua Painter and my Rich Regals Watercolor Wonder Crayons. These Crayons are so awesome. I highly recommend them! I started with the Rose Red on the large petals. After I had painted the color on the petals, I went back with the Crayon and colored in the center of the petals and the center of the flower. I then used my Handsome Hunter Crayon on the swirls.

More bling was in order here. I used my 2-way glue pen in the center of the flower, and sparingly on the black part of the flower. Then sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on.

If you have Watercolor Wonder Crayons sitting on your shelf - go get them. You won't be disappointed!
