Wet Watercolor

This was for yesterday's Try a New Technique Challenge on SCS, Wet Watercolor. I have never tried this technique before. It was a lot of fun. I think next time, though, I'll use different paper. I used the white cardstock by Papertrey Ink and it absorbed a lot of the water before I stamped, so the "blurry" effect didn't happen as much as it should. Maybe I just needed more water. I'll have to experiment! :) I added some sparkle for some added interest.

Well, we leave in the morning for vacation. I didn't know if I was going to be able to post to my blog while I was away, but I think I may be able to a little. I've decided to make this week easy, so I've already made some "Warm Up Cards" that are all ready to share when I get to a computer. They are all quick and simple, so hopefully you'll like them! I used up a lot of scraps. . . yay! So, if you happen to visit this week, don't expect any earth-shattering creations! :) Simple, relaxing vacation stamping only! :) Thanks for visiting! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Remembering You; Paper- DCWV turquoise, olive, black, white cardstock from Papertrey Ink; Ink- Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise, Palette in Noir, Old Olive; Accessories- Offray ribbon, paper piercer, black marker, small oval punch, Making Memories brads.
