Infusions and paint mark 2

Hello there! Well I've been playing again - so much to do but I can't keep from getting mucky with paint and infusions! This time I've been playing with a new stamp set by Kay Carley that jumped in my basket at Countryview crafts too!!! Here's the results of my play...


I used watercolour cardstock and stamped the main floral image a few times. Then I used infusions in blackcurrant and spritzed. Next I added some royal blood infusions and spritzed with water again.  Onto the painty part.... I used some tinting base from decoart and mixed some of the royal blood infusions in with it - I used this to paint around the flowers. I mixed more tinting base with blackcurrant and violet and painted some of the flowers in. Lastly I did the dragonflies and the words...


I am very pleased with this - the stamps are so very pretty!

I want to enter this into the paperartsytopic-3-paints-with-infusions
and also

Have a lovely day!

Big hugs
