Another day, another challenge...

Plus a technique that I think I came up with???

A great way to water color and then stamp over it, getting the stamp, artistically over the watercoloring.

 Start with the image, watercolor paper and an acrylic block.

Turn your image upside down and place your acrylic block on the rubber side.

Place color using, Tim Holtz Distress Markers, on the block over the areas you want color.
Spritz your water color paper.
Spritz your block on the ink.

 Place your block onto the paper.

 Remove the block and dry with heat tool.

Now you can find the places on your stamp that match where you colored the paper.

 Inl up your stamp, I used Staz-on Black!
Stamp over the watercolored area.

This is the effect you get!

 AND here's the card I will be entering in the

 "Anne's Clean and simple Floral Challenge"
