Big Bold Magnolias Blog Hop | Inkon3

August 29, 2019

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be joining the Inkon3 Big Bold Magnolias Blog Hop as a guest designer! If you are hopping along with us, you should have arrived from Kassi Hulet’s blog. I will be sharing a couple other Ink On Three projects over the next few weeks but for today I am focusing on their gorgeous new Big Bold Magnolias Stamp Set.

To start, I first heat embossed my flowers and leaves with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto some Ranger White Watercolor Paper. I then used some Zig Watercolor Brushes to color in each flower and leaf.

Zig Watercolor Brushes Used:

  • Purple Flowers: Lilac 083, Deep Violet 084
  • Pink Flowers: Almond Pink 200, Light Violet 081
  • Leaves: Olive Green 043, Mid Green 046
  • Flower Centers: Bright Yellow 052, Mid Brown 065

Once finished, I then used the coordinating Big Bold Magnolias Dies to cut them out. For my background, I mixed some Purple and White Watercolor and used a large watercolor brush to paint a rectangular pattern on my background.

I then masked off the edges and then splattered this watercolor wash with both some diluted White and Black Paint for some added interest. I then adhered my flowers with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape and added my sentiment which I had heat embossed with some more Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.

Come hop along with us!
