I made this card for this week's sketch. It's been so hectic around here that I was excited to get a chance to stamp today. I was wondering what would happen if you took reinkers and dripped them on watercolor paper and then spritzed with water, this is the result, there was also some dabbing with a paper towel involved. (I now have blue and green hands!) I added a little color to the heat embossed lighthouse also. After this process, I took it to my son and asked if I should start over, or go with this, and he approved, so here it is. It would have been a shame to get blue and green hands for nothing!

Well, now you know, and your son has approved it! I think the results look really sweet.....I was actually wondering what you'd done before I read. The end results made a pretty cool looking sky! Lovely Father's Day card~

This is wonderful! I love your reinker bg and believe me, I've colored my hands plenty of times, lol. I'm now sporting some very dark blue/black ink under one nail where I accidentally stuck my finger in the ink. My finger looks awful! But your card is fabulous!
