water-colored florals

I finally got around to playing in Unity's monthly color challenge!


These are the beautiful colors:
 
Aren't they gorgeous?!

I used my favorite stamp set called Insightful Meadows. To get this watercolor-y look I rubbed some Distress inks onto my craft mat, spritzed with water, then used a brush to paint the ink onto the stamp. I stamped onto watercolor paper to help absorb the wet ink better. Then I rubbed another ink to create the aqua edge on the panel.
A nice easy way to pretend I painted something! Ha!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day.
