Hello and happy Sunday, everybody!
Aren’t Sweet Peas just the most nostalgic, romantic, homespun flower ever? I sure think so. I’ve created this “display” of some especially divine ones just for you — while you are coloring them up, I hope they also conjure up wonderful memories. Sweet Pea Show comes with a few Valentine’s Day sentiments, as well as a sweet little hello.
I decided to watercolor these sweet peas. I consider them a sweet and “casual” flower and so I was casual in my watercoloring technique too.
I cropped the image and overlaid one of the great sentiments when I printed it. Then I used my water brush and some ink from an ombre (pink to purple) watercolor stamp pad that I smooshed onto my craft sheet. I also used a couple of my Zig Clean Color pens to fill in the background and shade the blossoms a little. Then I used a black pen to outline the sentiment and to frame the piece. I LOVE this image!!
