I made this card for my mother. I say I water colored it in that I used a paint brush and water with the top of the ink pad to color it. I'm not sure if it will be considered a "real" watercolor...lol You may wonder how I made the scenery longer. I used the water mill stamp and then cleaned it, I only inked up the end with the fence and turned it upside down and stamped at the end of the right side up fence to make it longer. I then used the birds on a post stamp and brought them down the page a bit to show depth (I hope) I wrote the word Mom myself, but the font is Vivaldi (My favorite) TFL

Absolutely gorgeous coloring on that beautiful mill scene! Wow! You've created a lovely 'painting' with your use of the stamps! And the simplicity of the card base really accents the gorgeous image! I'm awed! TFS!
What a lovely job you did while making this card.
I think it's so clever how you extended the scene by flipping the stamp!!
I just used my Water Mill stamp set yesterday and felt so limited, but you used all of the stamps so very well!
