Cool Doodles

The design in the center of the left page is made with a moldable foam stylus tip and the "Cool Doodles" molding mat, while the blue flower is from the Hero Arts "Real High Country Wildflowers" rubberstamp set. I used the technique where you ink up your stamp and then lightly mist it with water before stamping. It causes the colors to bleed and gives a watercolor look to the impression. It works best with dye inks, such as the Adirondacks by Ranger.

The flower on the right page is a bloom taken from an artificial spray. I tacked it down in the center with Aleene's Thick Designer Tacky glue and dotted the center with a pearl.
