It's Wednesday, and that's Technique and Tutorial Day again at QKR Stampede and Eureka Stamps. Today, I'll be focusing on another technique for your paper flower stash - changing their color. I'll be working with flowers available with these links at both Eureka and QKR. If you're used to seeing my post pop up on the two blogs earlier in the day, sorry about that - chest cold had me totally forgetting what day it was yesterday. If you see any errors in this post, I hope you'll be forgiving - lol.
I applied the Copic marker directly to the flower. Colors used here are: YR 20, 21, 23, 24.
A really easy way to add saturated color is to spritz the inside of a small baggie and add a drop or two of Distress Re-Inker. Spritz each flower with a bit of water, add them to the bag and massage till the flower is well colored. Remove the flower carefully as it will be very delicate when wet. The following photos show the results of this technique.
For this one, I applied the Distress Ink Pad directly to the flower, then spritzed the flower with water.
And finally, I tried Smooch spray. I didn't think of this until my card was completed, so this flower is not in the bouquet.
