Faux Watercolor

 The challenge this week in our stamp group was to use a watercolor with a twist, well as I went back and read it I don't think I did it correctly but this is my outcome.

We were to lightly mist our water color paper with water, stamp our solid stamp and then as it dries stamp it again, well I did the first part correctly but my second stamping was with the outline stamp.

I am also sharing this with the Sisterhood of crafters blog where the challenge was to use our senitment as the focal point.

W Plus 9 - Pretty Peonies stamp set w/Distress inks
Worn Lipstick, Fired brick, Victorian Velvet, Spun Sugar, Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio, mowed lawn, bundled sage, peeled paint, tumbled glass, faded jeans, gathered twigs and Distress Oxide - Scattered Straw
Lawn Fawn - Fancy Scalloped rectangles die
Spellbinders - Fancy framed tags one die
Gemini - sentiment die
Bazzill - Brads

It was interesting how some inks seemed to wash out more than others and I noticed I had to keep misting my paper in order for there to be enough for the inks to spread out, but it was a fun way to stamp.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

When I read your title I was curious as to what this faux watercolor technique would be. Now I see it's one of my favorites from the past and I really need to revisit it sometime. Whether right or wrong, Connie, your card is delightfully colorful and pretty! I see a watercolor look to it. So sweet!
