Yesterday I told you how I’d been in a coloring mood, and I shared a card that I colored using Stampin’ Write Markers. For today’s card, I used an Aqua Painter to watercolor on Shimmery White card stock. I stamped the flower and sentiment from the Beautiful Day stamp set in Archival Basic Black ink, so it wouldn’t smear with the water. I’ve been in the mood for soft Springy colors, so that’s how I colored this card. Berry Burst is a pretty deep color, but that’s the nice thing about watercoloring. You can water down the color to make it much lighter. Another thing I like about it is that you don’t really know what it’s going to look like until it dries. It’s always a little surprise, which I think is fun.
