Wishing You Good Things

A few weeks ago when I was at my daughter's house, we grabbed her Art Impressions stamps and did a few cards with a very old technique. Art Impressions has watercolor stamps that you use with Marvy markers. Color the back of the stamp, stamp on watercolor paper and go over the whole thing with a waterbrush. When you are done, you have a creation that really looks like watercolor. I took a class at least 5 years ago on this technique and remember coming home and calling Julie right away. She had never heard of this. Before I knew it, she had a slew of these stamps and was teaching classes on the technique. See what we start with eachother?

Here's a close up of the birdie
That's it for now. Thanks to my dd for taking the pictures of my cards while I was there.

It's so beautiful.
I feel that it's really not easy for me to write line with watercolour.
But you did really great in doing that.
