Water color Technique

This Card starts with a technique I demonstrated at the Wow event put on by Latenight Stampers a pre convention event. It starts with a technique I borrowed from Tim Holtz using ink spots. I thought it would be easier to show you so here you go!

Start with Waterproof cloth(craft cloth), stamping spots and a water spritzer. I used Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Bashful Blue
Start by running Spot across sheet to create a strip of color. Do this three times once with each colors and avoid touching colors
This is what it should look like now
Spritz with water till you see water droplets all over
Close up of water droplets

Place paper on top of wet area

Smooch around to get color all over paper
Lift off When dry you can go back and do this again to add intensity

Card is ready for stamping when dry

I saw this technique in person; the results are just awesome. It is very re-createable too. Thanks for the tutorial, Virginia.
