Hello There Crafty Friends,
I love water colouring, but i'm not great at it. I found the best way for me is to stamp an image, and use my oxide ink pads as a paint pallet.
I loved the images in My Favorite Things, Let's Stick Together.

Firstly I cut a piece of water colour card stock, just smaller than my card blank.
I then stamped my flower pot image in versafine grey, on to the cardstock.
I then used a strip of masking tape over the image and stamped my cactus's.
I then removed the making tape to reveal, my complete image.
To make a palette of colours I stamped my ink pads on to a glass mat.
I used these to painted in my image,and let it dry.
I then masked completely over this.
I started painting the ground.
Brown to look like soil.
I had great fun in splatting paint over my work to add a gardening theme.
Lastly I removed my masking tape. Stamp a sentiment directly on to my work with versafine black onyx.
I poured clear embossing powder over this and heat set.
Finally I add some nuvo drops and high lights with a white gel pen to finish my card.
