For today's Try a New Technique Challenge, TLC118: Wet Watercolor. I used watercolor paper for both the image panel and the background panel. I colored the solid image stamps with markers and then dried the paper using my embossing gun. Then I colored just the flower image of the outline stamp with markers and stamped over the solid image. To soften the harsh white of the watercolor paper on the background, I misted it very heavy with water and using a sea sponge dabbed Cameo Coral on the wet paper. To take some of the color off then, I used a paper towel and just light dabbed up some color. Thanks was colored with marker, stamped off once and then stamped on the background layer. Heartfelt was colored with marker and then stamped with no off stamping.
