Gansai Tambi Watercolored Mum

mustard mum hb


Hi everyone!  It’s Holly posting today, and I played with my Gansai Tambi watercolors this time.  I stamped this beautiful Framed Stained Glass Chrysanthemum with archival black ink onto some watercolor paper.  Then I used a paintbrush dipped in water to pick up colors from my palette of Gansai Tambi watercolors.  I wanted some autumn colors for my flower, so I colored it with some mustard and  hints of orange and red.  This piece was set aside to dry completely for several hours.

The background is a layer of mustard cardstock which has been embossed with a brick pattern.  It is adhered to a black card base.  I matted the watercolored flower piece with some black cardstock, and I added the persimmon orange ribbon underneath the image.

There are so many different colors you could use with this chyrsanthemum.  Imagine this in pinks or reds or purples or even white.  You could color this with anything.  Watercolors, colored pencils, Copic markers, or even crayons would be lovely with this image.  I used my Gansai Tambi watercolors because I wanted to see how they blended on a flower and leaves and ribbons.  These Gansai Tambi watercolors are very creamy and the pigments are very rich.  They work very well with floral images like this one from Art Neko.

Art Neko has hundreds of beautiful floral stamps.  Check out their catalog of floral images and have fun shopping!

    Holly, what a beautiful splash of autumn colour – I love the ribbons on the chrysanthemum image, and I can imagine them and and the flowers in all sorts of colours, I think the image could even work for a wedding card with silver or gold ribbons and a white bloom with just a blush of colour. It looks fab on the brick wall background.
