Beauty is in the Eye...



Howdy doo........

Playing with watercolors again. I know...it's different, but there is just something about it that appeals to me.

I colored the stamp with Memento markers, misted and stamped it onto misted watercolor paper. You end up with a colorful mess that somewhat resembles the stamp.
Wait for the paper to dry...yeah right...warm it up with a heat gun...so much faster.
Now stamp the paper again with the same stamp that has been inked with Versafine Onyx Black ink.


Another birthday card done ..I am so on a roll with my new years resolution...well one of them anyway.  :)
