Deckled Watercolor

We have a very interesting site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge..Brown Paper Bag. There are so many wonderful things to see & I chose THIS for my inspiration. 

For my version, I inked some watercolor stamps w/ distress oxide inks, misted, then stamped them onto watercolor paper. In some places, I took a water brush & dragged the color more toward the center. One of the splatter images was inked w/  black DOX & stamped in the upper corner. When dry, I used a set of deckle rectangle dies to cut the 3 panels & edged them w/ a gold leaf pen. I used the blue & black DOX inks to paint the die cut flower branch & added mirror gold centers & wrapped some black & gold thread around a couple of the panels before putting it all together.

Here’s the inside.
