HoneyBee Stamps August release Honey Hop

Good Morning Honey Bees! Welcome to our August release Honey Hop!!!
I am so very excited about this release!
All this week we have been showing you little sneaks of our awesome new stamp sets and dies! Tomorrow our new release goes live and to celebrate we are showing you some beautiful projects, Today!!!
I used ZEN BOUQUET stamp set. This is a HUGE set, with one Large image and several smaller single images for building your own Bouquet.
I chose to use the large image:) and I wanted a FOLKSY wood colored look to my watercoloring of the gorgeous Bouquet:))
Here are the steps in making the card:
After masking off 1/4" around a A2 sized CS.
I placed the bouquet image stamp in the full sized MISTI and inked it with Kraft colored dye ink.

Then, I selectively inked the image with the brush side of Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers, spritzed it with water and then pressed it onto the CS.
  • Sometimes I re-spritzed to get more color "hazing or halo"
  • Repeated the marker inking step several times with different colors until I was happy with wash of colors.
  • Then I went back with the fine tipped end of the marker to add more detail.

Aqua colors used
And a close-up of the added KINDNESS HoneyCuts and sequins
