Artsy Vintage Roses

Today I am posing cards created using layering flower stamps with a different technique. I have been thinking of using Vintage Flowers stamp to create artsy flowers in watercolors. I experimented with various water soluble inks (distress inks, stampin up inks and art markers) in combination with misting water at different level of stamping (stamping on wet paper/misting stamp with water before stamping/misting stamped image). I think, light misting of image after stamping brought out better results without obliterating lighter colors and merging all shapes. 

Here are the cards I created.

Congrats at winning the SSS giveaway. Your cards are so pretty. I never thought about misting a stamped image to get a watercolor look. Prett obvious though, now that I think about it!

Thanks, Lynda. Yes, I was doing some watercolor paintings a few days ago which gave me this idea for artsy stamping.
