Watercolor Cherries

Happy Monday, Stampers! Today's project is one that my technique class will be making this evening. We are learning coloring techniques this month, and this card demonstrates use of Watercolor Paper and the Aqua Painter. These two products combined can make anyone feel like an artist!

For those who haven't tried these products, Aqua Painters come in two sizes and are simple to use. Just unscrew it and fill it with water. Gently squeeze to disperse water. You can add color from an ink pad or from an ink refill by blending it on the cover of your ink pad. If the Aqua Painter is too moist, brush it off on scrap paper until the brush reaches the desired moistness. Always use Black Stazon Ink for stamping the image as it will not run when wet. For best results use Watercolor paper with your Aqua Painter as it is sturdy and won’t tear or warp when wet.
