Hello 2015!!

Trying my hand at some water coloring techniques.  Took a great online class months ago, but just now finding the time to actually play with all the great ideas.

This was done by smooshing (yes, that is a technical term) distress ink pads on an acrylic block, then misting with water.  I then stamped a background image, the main image and the saying.

Same technique, but with less water added.

This one was done by placing the wet water color paper under a stencil until dry.

While the distress ink was still in my reach, thought I would use Faded Jeans for a wintery sky.

It's been awhile since I have even looked at my blog (over 3 years to be exact), so better see if I can do some "cleaning up".  Please excuse the mess, but hopefully I will come out the other side with some new badges and more cards to share.  Thanks for stopping by!!
