True Friends

I think I am crazy about my veggies as you can see with all the vegetables I have been creating, or coloring lately.  Wanting to draw an artichoke, it occurred to me that I already had a beautifully drawn stamp by Concord & 9th called Vintage Artichoke.  I stamped it up onto the watercolor paper and away I went.

Creating this Piece

Once I stamped the image out, I wet each individual leaf one at a time and applied the colors directly to the paper.  Once the colors were placed, I used a paint brush with water to slightly move the ink around.  The background was added after the image was completely done because the image looked lonely on the large white background.

I tried out some Hot Press paper for this one and didn’t like it as much as the Cold Press I had been using.  I will give another shot before making my mind up on a preference.

The sentiment that come with this stamp are so perfect.  You must check it out.  Oh, and for those that love the complimenting dies…they have those too!
