Watercolor Flowers part 3

These are not exactly watercolor flowers. This was part of an experiment to see what I could do in black and grey. Of cours after you get the image stamped then you have to come up with some type of a card design. That is often far more difficult than the stamping part.

The grey background on the card on the left is a a stamp from B & J Art Stamps. The black flower image is from Hero Arts. The unusual thing about this design is that textured white background. It is paintable wallpaper. One roll will last you a long long long time. It can be used plain or you can try multiple ways of coloring it.

This grey background image is a stamp from Yvonne Albritten Designs. I can not find a website for this company, so I have no idea if they are still in business. The black flower image is another from Hero Arts. This time the textured background is silk wall paper. I have this particular wall paper in cream and white. It was found with some slightly frayed ends in the sale bin. What a bargain!
These are both simple designs. Feel free to copy and tweak to make them your own.
Happy stamping and God Bless

  1. I've seen Yvonne's background images recently at a stamp convention but I can't remember who was handling them. I think these cards are my favorites of all the watercolor flowers you've done.
