Simple Watercoloring

Hello friends!
Do you love Watercoloring cards?
If you are like me who can't draw, but love the watercolor look...
you then need to get this stamp.
 My trusty Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor came to the rescue. 

This is my result. 

It's a delicate balance between watercolors and water. It's entirely up to you to make it "just right". Notice that it is YOUR creative license, so there is no right or wrong.


I also can not stress enough about the importance of MISTI which makes lining-up the stamps so nicely. 

Ding---> create a barrier with clear-embossing powder! Just stamp the image in Versafine Onyx Black first, then pour clear-embossing powder  and heat-set it. The barriers prevent you from coloring the unwanted area. Love that!
Here is another version with this stamp, in case you miss seeing it.

Do check out the SALES over Simon Says Stamp if you love deals!
More new stamps from Penny Black (see here).
Here are what's new.
The coupon code "HEART" (takes $5 off) still works!
Thanks for stopping by!
