KryssiNg - 03Mar2010 - Vegtastic 2

I created a watercolor piece with my Vegtastic stamps. I didn't have actual watercolors, so I used a combination of Spray inks (Smooch Spritz, Tattered Angels) diluted in water and a brush. Pretty much the same, but I've been digging the washed out, imperfect coloring of watercolors lately, so I'll have to reinvest in a basic watercolor set. If you decide to do this, make sure you use watercolor paper. Regular cardstock will warp and bend when wet.

I'm thinking this would be really cute displayed in our kitchen!

Thanks for stopping by, good luck along the hop!

  125. Kryssi, oh my gosh! I LOVE your watercolor without water colors. There is just something about water color that draws my attention, it's so interesting maybe? but you know when I water color I feel like I have to fill in all the space. I'm not sure what's up with that. LOL The effects you got with the tattered angels and smooches is great. =D
