I masked the image first using Daler & Rowney Masking fluid and used the wet on wet watercolor technique to build the background. I am using Camel Student Water Color Tube* and Sakura Koi Water Brush*. Once the background was dry, I peeled off the masking fluid and painted the image.

Debuting on Mudra Blog !

Hey guys,

I broke this news on my social media accounts a little while back that I will be working with a new company called Mudra Stamps based in India and I am so excited about it. I have been working with them offline for a little while now and absolutely love their dedication, designs and quality of stamps.

Also, since I am working not only as a designer but also a stamp coordinator, it is all the more exciting. I will be overseeing the designs from the scratch before they go into production.

So hop on to the Mudra Blog to check out the new release and the design team sharing fabulous cards. Here's a little peek at my card.



I hope you give these stamps a try and share your creations with us!

I stamped the gorgeous flowers and leaves from Altenew Peony Bouquet Stamp Set on Fabriano Elle Erre Binaco cardstock and colored using water soluble oil pastels, blending the colors with my finger. Then I fussy cut all the elements to arrange on the card. For the background, I scribbled the two shades of green water-soluble oil pastels onto white cardstock and lay Hero Arts Pebbles stencil on top. Then using a wet wipe, I went over the stencil to create the texture on the background. The wet wipe blended the open areas on the stencil leaving the crayon look on the negative portion. I stamped the sentiment from the Altenew Painted Greetings Stamp Set. Then using foam tape and liquid adhesive, I arranged the elements on the base and then mount…
