Friday July 7, 2017
I am trying to play with my Ranger Oxide inks again. I stamped this Power Poppy flower set on black card stock. I stamped in pink and then masked and stamped two more times in blue.. I spritzed with water but I wasn't getting the look I wanted it was just too light. I guess it's better with more of a solid stamp.. So I took my Inktense water color pencils and filled in the pink and blue and green stems.  I am wondering now if I shouldn't of brought the stems down further than the stamped image showed.. I was concerned it wouldn't look the same because of the actual stamped stems. I took My Favorite Things hugs die and double layered it and added to the card. I added some Nuvo drops and cut the sides off some and added to white card stock base.
