Playing with Watercolour

The current Pink Elephant challenge is to watercolour - and I decided it was high time for me to hop on the bandwagon & play!


Supplies: sentiment from Paper Smooches; medallion stamp from Stampendous; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists in Pearl, Cherub Pink, Starfish, Blue Skies, and Turquoise Blue; Distress inks in Victorian Velvet & Peacock Feathers; Neat & Tangled crystal clear sequins; Versmark & Moonstone EP; AC silver card stock; Cuttlebug embossing folder; silver paint pen

First I used the four coloured mists to paint the background, and then I inked up the medallion stamp with two colours & spritzed it with Pearl mist before stamping on the still-wet background piece. Once it was dry, I cut the panel to the size I wanted & stamped the sentiment. I love how the inks bled into the background - this medallion stamp is truly one of my go-to stamps. 

xoxo,
Jessi
