Harvest Blessings

This is a new Sweet 'n Sassy image called Harvest Blessings available in clear set form and it is gorgeous! I decided to try a different coloring technique and have found another coloring medium I love....watercoloring with Distress Inks. I found the best way to have a workable palette was too blot my ink pad onto a non pourous surface, such as a plastic lid or I used my image placing plastic square that I use with my Stampamajig. I then used a fine tipped water brush and had some paper towels near and colored away on my stamped watercolor paper. You do want to be careful not to add too much water as you will get very washed out colors and even watercolor paper can curl with too much moisture. The last little detail I did was once the image was completely dry, I went back over sections and highlighted them with a white gel pen. My little tag is from the office section on WalMart and fit the sentiment perfectly. I added a punched border and some pearls to finish it off. I hope you are having a good day and don't forget to be thankful!
