Hey Friend

I had some free time this weekend and decided to try a few new techniques.  I played with my distress inks again,  I really love the look of watercoloring and wanted to try a new to me technique I've seen.  For this card I stuck to just one colour for now - I inked up the solid stamp and spritzed water on it before stamping on the paper.  I didn't use watercolour paper and it turned out fine.  After it dried I stamped the detailed stamp in archival ink over top - Versafine Onyx Black.  LOVE this ink, it's so crisp and clear.  After all was dry, I brushed over the flowers with my Clear Wink of Stella pen.

I'm very pleased with how this turned out, love the pink ink with the black.  I'm also loving the cardstock, it's Bazzill Marshmallow.  It coordinates perfectly with the My Mind's Eye Now and Then Mildred papers.  I finally got to play with these Mama Elephant Femme Frames dies too!!
