When you just can't stop...

When you just can't stop..... watercoloring! 

I'm totally on a watercolor kind of kick.  Granted it's not really traditional watercolor but it is filling my creativity hole lately.  First though let me show you the layout for this weeks challenge! 

Classic and simple with a tad of fun!  Don't you love it??!

Let's talk through what I did. First I stamped with the succulent stamp set on watercolor paper.  The middle is full strength Always Artichoke and the ones on the side are stamped off once.  Then I Stamped the outline with Staz-on. Next take your mister and spritz water all over the card to spread your dye ink.  I dried it with my heat gun, because let's be honest I'm not waiting for water to dry these days!!! :) Next, I went back in with my water color pencils and added details and water colored the background.    Lot's of steps but really pretty basic!


  1. Such a pretty effect! I like your double matting too - the DSP adds to the whole without taking the limelight from the succulents. Lovely work!

  2. This is so pretty!! Love the ribbon you used and your coloring on the succulents is so cool!
