Banana Split Watercolor for TPD Stamps

  The new release is in full swing at Two Paper Divas Stamps and today, I'm featuring "Banana Split".  This yummy concoction is perfect for birthdays, just because or a romantic gesture for your significant other.  I've paired a sentiment from the "Sail Away" stamp set, but TPD has a number of stamp sets that pair nicely with Banana Split, such as "Here's the Scoop", the new release "Junk Food Alley" or "You Make Life Sweet".

I took some liberties with my water colored image, adding hot fudge without the sprinkles, as pictured in the graphic at the end of my post.  Here's a close-up.

I also added Stickles Glitter Glue in Frosted Lace for my whipped cream, and outlined the edge of my fudge with a Kaisercraft glitter pen, for a little added definition.   This looks good enough to eat!  And, zero calories!

I used my Tim Holtz waterbrush to do most of the coloring with my Tombow dual brush markers, although, I didn't have the right shade of red for my cherries, so I used a Carmine Red Zig clean color brush.  I added some white from a gel pen, then blotted with water from my Tim Holtz waterbrush, to get the highlight on the cherries.

To finish, I added polka dots with my waterbrush and ink from my Tombow (swiped on an acrylic block) that match the colors of my Banana Split boat.  Perfection!  This is a nice sized stamp at just over 3" and is great for coloring.  The dimension was perfect for my large, 6"x6" card.
