Hello, today I am happily blogging about the new floral stamp set Thankful for friends from Pinkfresh Studio. This gorgeous floral stamp is designed by one of my favorite designers Alex Syberia. Her designs are not only stunning but extreamly easy to use! I love to color them in all my favorite mediums. For today’s card though I used watercolor. I started out with one of my usual watercolors and then the postman arrived! At long last my Pinkfresh watercolors had arrived! I have all of them all except for one, yellow not in stock, so maybe next time. I have to say I was impressed with this liquid gold. I only used three colors thus far but they were highly pigmented and behaved very well both diluted and concentrated. The little bottles are perfectly equipped with an eyedropper, allowing me to use just what I needed.

Prior to watercoloring I took a piece of Arches cold pressed watercolor paper, I do love this paper it is quite textured but allows me to use as much water as I need to achieve my desired effect. For this particular project I actually used gauche first then stamped the image and the watercolored. I always use pencil crayon to add depth to a image. Then there is always the decision to splatter or not to splatter! I love little peppery splatters across my pictures so I do love to splatter most of my work! Then for a little added interest I used Studio Katia Sequins and Embellishments.

Thank you ever so much for stopping by I will list the supplies that I used below.
