Here is that video on coloring a vase with water that I've been promising and you've been waiting for, thanks for your patience! I hope you see how easy this is to do. You could take more time and use more colors for even more realism, but I think this works perfectly for the style of the illustration and the whimsy of the flowers. If you don't yet have the Buds and Vases set and love florals, I know you will enjoy all the variety it gives you with the different container stamps. It is still one of my favorite sets.
I must say, I was very tempted to plop in one of the *new* flowers form my new set releasing next Thursday from Gina K. Designs instead of the Journey of the Heart flowers on this card, but that would have been a bit premature! Soon, I promise!
Don't worry if you have some gaps in your image where you marker didn't hit every place. Just makes it look more artsy and stylized. :)
Don't worry if you have an open space behind your flowers on the vase. (See above!) If that really bothers you, place your floral image over the vase when inking so you can see exactly how much of the back of the vase to leave open/uncolored. Know what I mean?
