Watercolour Stamp *Painting*

I used my new Dee Greunig/Marvy watercolour brush pens on my Hero Arts floral designer block silhouette stamp and had a grand time *painting* this picture in soft, pastel colours.

I used a cosmetic sponge from the Dollar store and using 2 shades of green, gently brushed it across the 120 lb cold pressed watercolour paper to get the effect of grass.

With a larger cosmetic sponge, I swirled the soft blue over the paper to get the effect of soft clouds and sky.

To really make it mixed media, I added 2 butterflies in a blue that was very similar to the soft blue flowers in the garden below.  I made it to fit the frame and matte that my husband didn't need right now so it measures not quite 8" X 10".

So pretty... love the grass and the sky. Wish I could do it as well as you do.

Keep well,
