Watercolor Fusion



I loved the sketch AND the inspiration photo for the current Fusion Card Challenge! It was perfect to use some distress inks then spritz with water before stamping on watercolor paper.  I first stamped the floral spray with Spun Sugar then offset the second stamping with Picked Raspberry.  I then stamped only half of the image with Squeezed Lemonade then offset with a second stamping with Mustard Seed.  The leaves were inked, spritzed and stamped with Mowed Lawn.  I put some ink on an acrylic block then picked up some color with my aquapainter to fill in the open leaves.  I loved pairing up the Wet Paint text style set - also by Papertrey Ink - with this Garden Grace set!  The pink panel is Raspberry Fizz CS by PTI.

This is wonderful Wanda - I love the bold color, and the drama of the dark sentiment. You have a great eye for color!
