Hollyhocks are one of my favourite flowers but sadly, I am unable to grow them in my garden so playing with this stamp from Impression Obsession makes me happy.
Sorry, another blue card but it seems I am drawn to that colour and the combinations I can get using different shades of blue with other colours. For this one, I tried to add some purples in with my blues to perk up the look of the flowers.
So, I grabbed my MISTI, positioned my stamp inside then coloured the flowers using Memento markers, sprayed with water and stamped. I did that a few times to get a watercoloured looking impression. I then went back in with some purple ink and a wet paintbrush and added some more colour to the flower heads.
When it was dry, I inked the edges with Salty Ocean Distress ink and again, with a wet paint brush, pulled some of the blue in around the flowers.
The sentiment is from Rubbernecker and stamped it in Memento black ink.
