I've made a simple card with a stamp set I've had for almost a year and only used it now for the first time.. I ordered this online to practice on my watercoloring but after receiving the stamp it was clear for me some details were way too tiny for coloring (at least with my patience...) -like the bricks in the house, the fence and the bench... So I've been wondering how to add color to this image. In the end I did end up water coloring but with a more simplified style + I used an old wink of stella brush as my water brush (you can easily fill the pen after it's empty) and was able to turn my Distress Inks into sparkly watercolors. :) Thank you Anita who has once made this and the idea stuck in my head! :) The background I "brushed" with brown DI and an old make up brush. I wanted it to be very soft and water coloring and ink sponging both failed, I think this looks nice. :) After the image was all done I die cut the panel and heat embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set. Hope you like and thanks for popping by!
