I used the same technique of selective coloring as I did for my card HERE, but used a different stamp set, also by Altenew called Handpicked Bouquet.
I embossed my image in Copper and then water colored just the flower and buds in shades of blue, leaving the leaves uncolored. This is a 3 step stamp, so after inking the first layer, I lightly spritzed it with water and then then stamped. I repeated this same process for the 2nd and 3rd layers also, and then used my Aqua Painter to move the color around just a bit more. For the buds I just used the Aqua Painter and two shades of the blue ink that I smooshed into an acrylic block.
Here's a closer up for you. My embossing looks silver in my photos, but truly, it really is copper and looks so pretty with the shades of blue! I die cut the image with a stitched rectangle die (Lil Inkers) and then added a layer of Not Quite Navy cardstock behind it before adhering to a white card base. The sentiment was stamped in the darkest blue ink I used on the flower and is from SSS's Sketched Flowers.
You have until the 24th to play along with us, so get out those BLUE inks and create a CAS card. You can find a lot more inspiration from the DT and our special GD TaeEun all right HERE, so join in the fun...we can't wait to see what you create using SOMETHING BLUE
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
