It's A Watercolor Weekend

Welcome back,

I have a few cards that I need to make and send off, Since I hadn't used my Art Impressions water color stamps lately, I decided to make a few different water color cards.

Over the next few days I will share the other cards that I will be sending off to their destinations.

I learned the technique of water coloring the Art Impressions way, many years ago. And it is a really fun and easy technique. 

Years ago, the Marvy ink pads and markers were the inks to use but sadly those are no longer available. Yes I still have some of those in my stash (they have not dried out yet) but I wanted to test the Distress Ink pads and markers to see if they were a good substitute. I figured they would be and I was not disappointed. 

Let my card me share my card -

Those gray stones at the bottom of the urn, I hand drew those in to give a little more interest to the bottom of the stamped image..

I just love doing this technique 
Please  look for more water color cards this week.
