PB Stamp: Pretty Petals, House of Parliament, Heartfelt
House of parliament stamp has been one of my favorite stamp to use. It is a wood mounted rubber stamp, so i have to be careful if i want to stamp more than once. I could remove it from wood so i can attach to misti but i tried not to go that route. 
When i created this scene, i wanted the poppy for foreground and building as background. Somehow, i know i have to do masking, but i was too “lazy” to cut the masking for the poppy, so i stamped the house of parliament in light brown, BUT it was not very light. You can tell that the poppy looks like transparent with marks of the background. I tried to recover it, and here it went. 
This mimics the scene of Poppy in England in November.

  1. Love your work, too, like our favorite artist Michele Jourdain.
    You do wonderful and amazing work. Can you share each time the colors you use?
    I am new to watercolor and need that extra nudge.

    • Hello Tish, thank you for your nice comment and motivating words.

      I am new to photo blogging and i know i need a lot of work on writing description more.

      I am so pleased you like my works, for water colour, i used 24 colours sakura koi, distress ink (reinker/ stain and pad) and memento ink pad.

      Pardon me for not documenting most of the combination of colours i used, let me try to recall

      I stamped the house of parliament stamp with light brown from memento “toffee crunch”

      I stamped the poppies 2 times from pretty petals stamp using distress ink “fired brick ” and then coloured them using wet on wet technique with “aged mahogany” and finally gave a darkening of “walnut stain” distress ink reinker

      I think i did use a little colour from sakura koi too, for the browning of the house of parliament and the poppies background.

      Finally, i wet the background with big brush, and used a flat brush to touch the edges with distress ink “chipped sapphire” reinker.
      Let the water blend themselves. Sometimes i go over it,
      Sometimes i leave it to the water to react and watch it.

      I hope this helps to get it going. .
      I’m also a beginner myself, Tish.
