Deepti's Lotus Love

STAMPlorations is having a mini release of Deepti's LOTUS LOVE stamp set.
The possibilities are endless with this set:)
here is the first card I created:
  • I stamped the LOTUS image in Khaki on Distress water color paper
  • fussy cut and placed a mask over the flower
  • Stamped the stem in Khaki as well
  • used some liquid mask on that and let dry.
  • Wet the background with clean water and colored with ZIG markers  
  • here are the ZIG colors I used

  • Once the background was dry I inked up various Distressed Floral Swirls with the markers and stamped  over the masks
  • Stamped the sentiment in black
  • Highlighted the bloom with Clear Wink of Stella
There is a bit of shimmer! So very hard to photograph:)

Here is the set and another card I created by stamping/masking several of the images and coloring with zig markers.
