Watercolor Florals with MarkerPop

Happy Sunday... It's my last Guest Designer Spot with MarkerPop today. It's been so much fun working with them this month. Today I have a project using Distress Markers and the Wplus9 sets Fresh Cut Florals & Fresh Cut Containers.

This is a technique where you add ink directly onto the stamps with the Distress Markers onto watercolor paper and then using a slightly damp paintbrush you add water to move the ink around. 

I stamped the flower pots onto the watercolor paper with the Rusty Hinge & Tea Dye markers... just adding ink to the outside edge of the stamp so it created a line. Once it was on the paper I took a slightly damp paint brush and pulled the ink inward to create the pot shape. 

Then I added the flowers, layering each over the other. You want to color directly onto the flower stamps as well with the markers and once they are on the paper just use your paint brush to pull the ink around to fill them in a little and haze out the lines. I used Distress Markers in the colors... Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Picked Raspberry, Forest Moss, Spices Marmalade, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves & Aged Mahogany. I added a ground with the Frayed Burlap marker and stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento ink once the images were dry. I trimmed it to size and add the watercolor panel to a piece of Bazzill card stock in Gumdrop
