I've been dabbling with water colors lately because I think water colors are cool. Since they are trendy right now and everyone is going on about various water coloring techniques I thought I should toss my hat in the ring.
I read about a technique where your liberally mist your paper with water and then stamp on it in dye ink. The ink reacts to the water and runs a bit to give your image a water color look. It works best with bold stamps especially the ones that already have a water color look to them.
The Fine Print: Brand new stamps by A Muse Studio "Beautiful Birthday" (available July 1) stamped in Memento ink on watercolor paper, butterfly die and lime pearl also by A Muse Studio (old stuff but will be carried over to the new catalog). The light gray circles in the flower centers are made with a pencil eraser.
