WaterColor Wash with the Wetlands Stamps

Watercolor Wash technique with Stampin'UP!'s Wetlands stamp set.
One more card made with my new favorite stamp set: Wetlands.  This card was the one used to showcase the August Technique of the Month, which was Water Color Wash.

The technique is perfect for this card - don't you think it looks like the birds are walking along the shoreline?

The technique is so simple (for best results use Water Color Paper)
  1. Just stamp the image in permanent ink like Staz-ON
  2. Then swish a paintbrush across the image in your desired colors.

And speaking of colors, did you notice the pearls? The small pearls on this card are Stampin'UP!'s Basic Pearls, which are self-stick, but come only in white.  However, you can color them with a Sharpie.  Amazing how well the Sharpie turquoise marker matches Stampin'UP!'s Coastal Cabana.
