I'm so excited to share my Mix-Ability card today - I love how my blown water color panel came out! It took me 4 tries to get something I liked but I kept at it. I found you really had to work fast so the water didn't just absorb into the paper and sit there! ETA: I just blew with my mouth - not a straw - don't know if this still counts??!
I brushed a puddle of water onto a white card stock panel, then I water brushed 3 different re-inkers quickly into the water on the panel (two blues and a green) then quickly blew on them.
I dried the panel with my hot gun - then stamped the sailboat and sentiment. I was going to frame the panel in black - but in the end - decided it looked great just adhering it to the white card base.
Did I say I LOVE how this came out???!!! So simple and so stunning!
Thanks Dini for expanding our horizons with new Mix Ability techniques!!
ETA: please see my Re-DO of this challenge with a slightly different technique more in keeping with the challenge instructions!!!
My stamps are a new release from Waltzingmouse called Ocean Bound available Saturday afternoon.

You did outstanding on this and I don't think it matters how you got the ink to move! Love the sentiment and image! I love the way the ink flowed for you on your card. And thanks- I thought I was the only one who needed so many attempts!
