I'm sorry I do not remember the whose tutorial I watched to learn how to shade this bloom from Flourishing Phrases. I started by stamping the bloom in a light shade onto Shimmery White card stock after "stamping off" and then using my Aqua Painter to pick up a darker shade from the lid of an ink pad and painting it onto a corner and down the side of each petal. I came back to them and just brushed the color over the entire petal and then let them dry.
I cut the circles using the Layering Circles Framelits and then framed them using the scalloped framelit in a complimentary color.
I adhered each framed bloom onto a Crumb Cake Note Card and tied a coordinating Ruched Ribbon into a bow to the left of the bloom. Lastly, I used a sentiment from Flourishing Phrases and stamped it using Crumb Cake Ink.
Using this easy technique will make you look like you know how to watercolor! The Shimmery White card stock takes the Aqua Painter and ink much better than the Whisper White card stock.
I hope you enjoyed looking today! Have a wonderful day. Please leave me a comment if you have the time.
