Challenge at Simplicity

This week's One-Layer Wednesday challenge is to use some form of watercolor on your card. You may use watercolor crayons, pencils, paints, or inks painted with watercolor, or water-based markers colored onto a stamp and spritzed with water.


I used water-based markers colored onto a stamp and spritzed with water to make this card. I started by embossing the card and then stamping my image onto an ivory card stock.  I love this technique to get the watercolor look with an image. I added a simple sentiment by inking the stamp.
