SSSD Aug. Technique

OK ladies. This month we are water coloring. If you have Distress inks these will work the best when it comes to blending. Take a piece of Water Color paper ( you can not use regular paper, it will fall apart )
On the smooth side of the paper stamp your image with Versa Mark. 

Apply White Embossing Powder and heat.

Now you can do this 2 ways. You can apply tour color to an Acrylic Block.

Or you can add it to your craft mat.

Add your color by smooshing the ink pad onto your surface and spray with water.

Using a water brush start coloring your piece.  Continue until the whole image is colored. 

Now start coloring the outside. Start light.

Add a darker color

And then an even darker color. Go back and using water and more ink blend your colors until you are satisfied.

Now for the hard part....waiting for it to dry so you can make your card.
