Stamping with Spectrum Aqua Makers & MISTI

Hello friends!
I am excited to share a project with you today.
 Have you ever stamped something that makes you go: “Wow, I can’t believe that I can stamp like that!!”  :)
 Well, this stamp called "Winged Beauty" does that for me!
The etched details on this stamp are simply amazing!
it's the little things
It is so easy to create when you have the "right stuff"....

With the help of MISTI, I used my 4 sets of Spectrum Aqua Markers to color all the images. After I applied the Aqua Markers,  I simply sprayed a light mist of water over it. And the colors came out beautiful and vibrant. I didn't even use watercolor paper because it was only slightly moist when I stamped. I also added some white embossing paste (at the bottom) for a subtle effect. I think the card had "a lot going on" as it was...so I kept the embellishments to a minimum :)

What do you think? I will definitely continue to explore the endless possibilities of using these stamps and markers.
Thanks for stopping by!
