Easter card in Watercolor...

Recipe for card: Stamps: Bloomin' Beautiful (pg 85), Very Versatile from the Occasions mini catalog pg.5 Cardstock & ink pads: Barely Banana, Always Artichoke & Rose Red Punches: corner rounder, wide oval & 1/16" circle. (pg184) Accessories: brads, Stampin' Dimesionals, ribbon, Aqua painter (pg 190)

I used the lid of the stamp pads as my paint palette. Press the lid into the ink pad to get ink onto the lid. Fill your aqua painter with water and you have your paint brush. For more vibrant color, add ink to the lid with your reinkers (pg154-155) This water color method is a beautiful and easy way to add shading & depth when coloring your cards.
