Watercolour Wednesday - Wisteria Wishes

Hello again on another wet Wednesday. Today's watercolour card using the Wisteria Wishes stamp set was easier than I thought it would be. I cut 2 white C6 mats and started with the green inks. I stamped each of the 4 blocks onto a green ink pads, added a drop or 2 of water and washed in a zigzag way across the paper. I used only the tip of the wide waterbrush to get the lines to show. Once I had used all 4 colours, I put it to the side to finish drying. The greens that I used were Granny Apple Green, Pear Pizazz, Old Olive and Evening Evergreen.

I then proceeded to do something similar with the purples. Starting with the lightest colour again I sort of stippled some colour across the C6 mat. I used only the tip of the brush and just touched the paper turning the brush in different directions each time. I think it looks more like a Wisteria because of the mixture of colours. The purples I used were Highland Heather, Fresh Freesia, Orchid Oasis and Gorgeous Grape.

Once dry, I die cut several of the leaves from the green and several of the individual flowers from the purples. I cut a few of the vine stalks using the brown of Soft Suede and added them to a blue mat which has been embossed using the retired Tasteful Textile embossing folder.

Above are the pictures with how I've made the papers for the flowers and the leaves.
