Michael Powell

Michael Powell, the cross stitch designer,  has designed some stamps for Papermania that look like watercolour scenes, so I thought I would give them a go.
I have got to say up front, I was a little disappointed with the quality of the stamp.  The rubber isn't very deeply etched and the foam backing is very thin.  As a result the image is not as crisp as I would like it to be, I will have to experiment some more.
I've watercoloured the scene with Distress Markers by scribbling onto a palette and picking the colour up with a waterbrush.  The image is just mounted onto a card with a coloured mat, keeping the whole thing quite clean and simple.

Ah, what a card! I love that you have left some areas of the image white - it gives such a nice effect!
