Ink, Water, Paper

Watercolor Fun

Heather's Share Your Spark Friday this time was to use watercoloring. After thinking about it...and looking at some of that new Kiwi Kiss CS from Stampin'UP!...I thought fall leaves & pumpkins. Watercoloring is fun...easy...and "it's OK" to not be perfect!

I stamped
the images with SU Basic Brown on Whisper White CS. Using an Aquapainter I pulled ink from the stamp pad lids. 3 ink colors were used - Kiwi Kiss, Always Artichoke & Pumpkin Pie. Sparkle was added (of course!) with a Gold Spica Glitter Pen. I think the pictures tell the rest of the story :)

All stamps are from A Muse except for the Stampin'UP! Linen Background behind the pumpkins. Orange patterned paper from A Muse. Kiwi Kiss CS is one of the new In Colors this year from SU.
