A Little Bit of Watercoloring

Hello friends!
I have been meaning to play with Sketch Floral Clear Stamp and finally got around to it.
This image is the largest that I have ever come across. The floral image comes in one piece! 


Shop Altenew here
Shop Simon Says Stamp here

This large floral image allows you to stamp in any way you like and color in any way you like.

 I was in need of some coloring therapy...this large stamp was the perfect anecdote. 

I actually was a bit intimidated to color the entire image at first and decided to test out a small area and see what happened....

I stamped the image with Altenew's Permanent Black (shop Altenew here, SSS here). This ink is formulated to work with Altenew Artist Markers or any alcohol-based markers. However, it also works with the watercoloring! I didn't need to clear-emboss the black outline and just went ahead and colored the images. No color-bleeding or smudges at all.

I highly recommend that you color a smaller area (to test out the water, so to speak) with a large image like this one.

I have always wanted to use a bit of grey in the background...I tried it this time and loved the result.
The sentiment from "More Than Words" fits quite nicely with my mood!

Lovely and colorful. I really like large stamps...takes planning out of the question. This stamp appears to be a great addition to Altenew's wonderful products.
