Sea Critters Watercolor Gift Tags!

Hello!
I've been taking some time to really explore the brand New Stamp Sets and SVG Kits by Fleurette Bloom [FB] and I must say they are just so much Fun! 

I used Rockin Quick CARDS SVG kit and Sea Critters Stamp Set to make my Gift Tags. These Tags are going to work Perfectly to gift my sewing project [to reveal in another post].

I especially like how Flawless they stamp out and the ease it takes with just one press.  I used Versa Mark ink and then a Dye ink over that to get the colored stamped images and heat set it with my heat tool.

To make the background for all my tags I used various Distress inks and also sprinkled the ink with a wet brush onto the paper while it was damp and then heat dried it. Using the Sea Critters Stamp Set, I stamped a bunch of bubbles in different sizes onto watercolor paper.   Love how these backgrounds came to life!

Then, I use my Zig Real Brush Markers to watercolor the stamped images. I love the look!!   Have you given the Zig Real Brushes a try yet?  I know you will love them as much as I do.

Now, you must know I'm not a professional stamper, But I do Love the art of stamping and watercoloring and I'm having a lot of Fun with it all!  With that being said, you will see I've went out of the lines in some places, but I think that's ok....let's call it Character for these sweet images! ha

Lesson learned: [color After image is cut out] When cutting my stamped images and "Tags" from the Rockin Quick CARDS Svg set, my Scan N Cut2  found every edge and it was very Easy to cut my stamped images out.  I had to giggle--it even found my 'character' flaws and so eloquently went around them [see sea star]! LOL!!  So Much Fun!

To finish up my Sea Critters I used some Wink of Stella Clear here and there on the Sea Star, Octopus and the fish's fins.
