Watered down and ....

A friend, Gloria, just purchased a Scor-Pal and wanted to see what the Scor-Bug does before purchasing it. Well, this gave me the opportunity to play with a new set called Watercolor Plants.


I stamped the flowers on dampened watercolor paper and used my watercolor crayons to color directly on the water-misted stamp. I stamped numerous times on the paper then dried with my heat tool. I then stamped the Just Because with Noir PH ink. I tried to coordinate the paper to the colors of the flowers but the green just wouldn't photo as bright was it actually was. I used DCWV Brights cardstock and "scored" and "bugged" as shown then sanded with my sanding block to expose the white core.

Love what you did. I don't use my watercolor crayons often enough. Guess I'll have to get them out again and give your idea a try. Thanks.
