Jumbo Peruvian Lily

Stampendous is rolling out the new release stamps and our new April Catalog is chock full of gorgeous flowers for you to use for any occasion! Birthday? – Flowers are great! Get Well? – Of course you’ll send flowers. Mom? – Yup! Flowers are her fave! Anniversary? – Of course!

Today I'm sharing a mixed media card made with a bunch of different paints featuring Jumbo Peruvian Lily. I've mentioned this before, but the jumbo stamps now come with masks, so I thought I would use it in this project. 

Here's what I came up with:

I started out by painting on watercolour paper with watered-down acrylic paints. It's just a "wash" of colour and you can see the horizontal strokes from my large brush.

Once dried, I taped down the mask with washi tape.

I added white paint with a dabber and made sure I either dabbed the paint on, or dragged it from the mask ON TO the paper. This will help to prevent bleeding underneath the mask.

After a few layers of white I removed the mask.

Once the white paint was dried I then stamped onto the paper with black Archival Ink. I didn't mind that it didn't line up perfectly because I'm going to add some shading and the white will help me achieve that.

After the white was dry I painted on top of it with acrylic paints. 
I also added some shading with my charcoal pencils - it's a nice effect!
