This was a challenge for me this month. I wasn’t sure what image to use for this so I started with the single bird in Free as a Bird … that didn’t work out. I chose to use the main succulent image from Simply Succulents.
I used my Stamparatus to stamp the image so I could stamp the first time on a scrap piece of paper and then on Shimmery White cardstock using Gray Granite. I actually stamped the second generation ink twice so I could see the lines. I then colored over the lines using Coastal Cabana and Old Olive watercolor pencils before moving the color around with my water painters. The pot is done the basically the same way but with a little more coloring in the image. For the background, I used some ink on my Bermuda Bay lid for a watercolor wash (I used my heat tool to dry it faster). Under the pot, I scribbled some more Coastal Cabana watercolor pencil to ground it. The main image is popped up using dimensionals.
