Watercolor stamping at Make it Monday



I don't usually have Monday off, so I can't always participate in Papertrey Ink's  Make it Monday . But I find myself with this Monday off after switching days off at work.

The challenge was to watercolor on your stamps with a highlight of die ink. Check out the video on YouTube to see how it is done. Now I have watercolored on stamps before, but never with my acrylics. I was quite surprised to see how well the acrylics grabbed the water color. The trick is not to get your water colors to watery. I used Turning a New Leaf and Heart 2 Heart #7

It is nice to revisit an old technique and even better to find a new spin on it. Thanks Erin!

Have a happy start to your week!
