On this technique in my group we were to add ink (at least 3 colors) to our mats or acetate sheets, spray with a mister about 8 inches above a couple of times to add some water to the mix and then take our stamp and stamp it into that mixture and then on to our cards. For some reason I didn't get a good full coverage of the stamp, but I thought it still gave a pretty watercolor feel to it. I stamped mine onto watercolor paper but the girls were getting good results stamping on smooth paper, I will be trying this technique again but with smooth paper next time.
This is for my great niece who is a teenager.
Stampin up -- of the earth stamp set

I keep forgetting to share some of the pics from our leaf viewing on Sunday.
Here is my little Peanut, she is 15 now and can't hang as well as she use to, I think her old bones are taking a toll, but she tried so hard to keep up with us. When we would put her in the car she would be totally asleep and snoring until the car stopped again and she would be all for getting out again, when we got home she went to her bed and barely got up and when she did you could tell she was hurting, I want to take her with us because she acts like she enjoys it but I hate to see her hurting later for it.
I loved how blue the sky looked against the colorful leaves in this one.
When we were walking back to the car I couldn't get over how bright the tree was so I took another picture, I love it when you can still see green in there too.
If I remember next time I will share some pics from the rest of the day.
Hope you have had time to get out and enjoy the fall colors.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and letting me know,
