This is a slightly different watercolor technique. First, I stamped the image in the preferred color onto the water color paper. Then once I got everything on the watercolor paper that I wanted, I took an aqua painter and brushed it along the image to "bleed" the color out. Since the stamp set is made to mimic doodles, the touch of a black roller ball pen added a nice touch without taking away color and fun detail of the stamp set. The other fun thing about this card is the scalop boarder using the slit punch. I have seen all over the internet where people are taking their circle punches apart to be able to get the paper in the punch to create the scallop. But what is great about this, I still get the cute scallop boarder without having to buy scallop scissors or take any punches apart!
