The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project with splashes of color.
I have the new Merlot Color Burst on my desk for our product swap blog hop Friday, so I thought I'd test it out on a watercolor card - it was a folded card, so I used both panels, adding color by sprinkling into wet, and also stamping from a craft sheet palette of activated powder. On this card, I stamped the image over the background, and then added deeper shading with more activated powder and a Distress marker.
For the second card I used the other half of the watercolor card. I stamped the Hibiscus image 3 times - once in brown and twice in a lighter kraft color.
On the darker image, I added shading inside the outlines, as I would normally color an image in. On the lighter images, I added color outside the outlines to create a negative image.
Stamps I used: Cactus Blossom, Expect Miracles, Hibiscus 2, We Change, Dot Border
