One of the things that I didn't think I would try was to stamp an image with Distress ink then watercolor the image. Distress inks react with water so why would I stamp an image with it then watercolor it? Wouldn't it mess up the image and muddle up the colors?
This is my first attempt and I fell in love with it! One thing I like a lot about this card is that it is gender neutral (don't you find it difficult to make a masculine or neutral one?) The other thing I like is that by strategically stamping the image many times on the card front, I get a focal image while
the remaining ones do not seem too repetitive. Yup, only two stamps are involved on this card - the Thank You sentiment and the one with a main branch, few leaves and an apple. Of course I like how my first attempt turned out - the image is still very clear and the colors are not messed up. It looks very much like a painted/watercolor picture while I've stamped it and colored it. How nice!
