You Are My Sweet Petunia


Hi, This is Susan. I hope you were able to grab this My Sweet Petunia set from Ink On 3. I love it when stamp companies collaborate and never more so than when they make fantastic products. Using my MISTI 2.0, I stamped the image in Ink On 3 Fade Out No Line Ink onto Arches 140 lb cold press watercolor paper. I did have to stamp the image 3 times because watercolor paper has a texture. 

For my base coat I used the new Atelier color - Sweet Petunia Pink from Ink On 3. It is linked below and is the perfect pale hot pink. I think it is a similar color to Opera Pink in watercolor. I then pulled out my watercolor palette which is mostly Daniel Smith watercolors and mixed up some pinks and deep reds. 

I used the wet on wet technique for the first wash with the ink and then used glazing with a wet brush afterwards to smooth out the hard edges. Honestly, I think this took a few days to paint as I frequently left it to dry. I added a blue background made from Lunar Blue and Prussian Blue. I splattered on the dark pink wash and some gold splatters. 

Also using my MISTI 2.0, I stamped the sentiment in Atelier Sweet Petunia ink onto Neenah Solar White 110 lb paper. This is actually a leftover scrap that I just keep near my desk. I did trim it a bit with one of my trimmers. 

I mounted the watercolor panel onto an old piece of pink paper that made the flowers bounce! I added some clear droplets from Pretty Pink Posh. So easy and this stamp set is very versatile so go buy it while you can.
