Here is the card I made for the hop today and a tutorial with my Spectrum Aqua Pens... scroll down to see my step-by-step photos.



Step 1: Select a color palette for the image.  I used Moss & Olive on the stems, Chocolate & Tan on the flower centers, and Gold & Sunflower on the flowers.


Step 2: Using the Olive Spectrum Aqua marker, add ink directly to the stamp with the marker tip.  I covered all of the stems with Olive ink.


Step 3: Using the Moss ink, I dabbed my pen tip on random areas of the stems.


Step 4: Cover the entire area of the flower center with Tan ink (sorry forgot to take that photo)
Step 5: Dab Chocolate ink to the outside left edges of each flower center.


Step 6: Using the Sunflower Spectrum Aqua Pen, add ink to each flower petal.


Step 7: Using the Gold Spectrum Aqua Pen, dab ink randomly to the flower petals.


Step 8: Using a spray bottle with water, mist some water on Spectrum Noir Watercolor paper & stamp the image.  (Tip: Make sure the spray bottle sprays a fine mist.  The water will give any ink that has dried the moisture needed to show up on the watercolor paper).


Here's a close up of the stamped image.
