With Love - some watercolor fun

It has been such a fun week playing with my new stash from Crafter's Companion.  I am enjoying the Spectrum Aqua Markers so much!


For this card I used the aqua markers to color directly onto the stamp (Sheena - As Seen On Screen - Wouldn't it be Lovely 1).  I then put a tad bit of water on a small brush and applied it to the stamped image to spread the color slightly.  I love how easy this makes a watercolored look.  After that, I used the fine line side of the markers to add some of the detail back into the image.  Such an easy technique for such an artistic look.

Make sure you head over to the Crafter's Companion website and check out the wonderful birthday sales they have going this week - lots of great things to celebrate 10 years for the UK business.

Love to enter this card in the following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy Friday - flowers
Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Through the Craft Room Door - anything goes

Thanks for stopping by - hoping your week is delightful!

Hugs,
Jodi

WOW! What an amazing technique you did to the stamped image with water. It turned out so beautifully. And lovely touch to the card with the lace embellishments. Simply a gorgeous card. The recipient is going to treasure it. Thanks so much for sharing with us over at TTCRD Challenges. Wishing you a lovely week ahead.
