Fresh Watercolor

Clare here today with some fresh watercolor cards!

I had SO much using Sweet Dreams stamp set! For this card, I used Staz-on ink so that the image wouldn't run after I went over with the watercolors.
After stamping, I sprayed the panel with water. Then I pressed my blue ink pad against a clear stamping block, added some water, then used a brush to apply it to the panel. I used more concentrated ink on the top, and more diluted water for the bottom.
Once the ink had dried, I used my paintbrush to "paint" clouds using only water. Then I placed a paper towel over the clouds while they were still wet, and picked up the wet ink, creating the shadowy clouds you see here!


Does this pink watercolor circle look familiar? Yep, I totally stole it off the logo. ;)
I masked off the circle for this card, and added the pink ink like I added the blue ink to the card above. Then I flicked some water on the card, and again, picked up the ink with a paper towel.
To achieve the smear affect, I added some water to the right side of the card, and dragged it off with the paper towel.
I then topped with off with the sentiment/image stamp from the Limited Edition Kit, and some cute Pinkfresh wood veneer hearts!


So there you are, two super easy but super fun watercolor cards!

Thanks so much for stopping in and have a fantastic day!
