Painting my Stamp and Red Rubber Designs

Hello, friends!  Phew!  It's good to be feeling better.  I can breathe again without feeling like someone is sitting on my chest.  Always a nice thing! 

 I couldn't wait to get into my stamp room so I checked out Splitcoaststameprs TLC575 challenge.  Karen is having us paint our stamps today.  She has three different ways for us to paint our stamps. I chose to combine painting this gorgeous Rosebud image from Red Rubber Designs with Brushos Color Crystals and TH Distress Markers as I don't have a wide range of colors in Brushos yet.

I painted the stamp with TH Distress Markers and misted the image with water, then stamped with the MISTI.  The MISTI was invaluable in my process because I stamped the image numerous times with different shades of ink.
(TH: Red Brick, Barn Door, Seedless Preserves, and Forest Moss)

Next I lightly painted with Brushos.
(Leaf Green, Brilliant Red, and Scarlet)

To finish off my painting, I masked the layer and sponged TH Distress Ink Salty Ocean, then with very little water ran a brush over the sponging. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!! 

Here's one last look at the beautiful Rosebud stamp:

I am playing along with the following challenges:
