I started this card on Monday using the technique highlighted in the TL Challenge, Watercolor Imprints. Sabrina has us using a tutorial in the Ways to Use It challenge and since I never completed the cards I had started with that technique I finished one up today. This was my favorite of the 4 I cteated that day. This one is using watercolor paints. I spritzed my watercolor paper thoroughly then spread blue and violet inks over the whole surface. I then laid the background stamp into the wet paint and went off to my Bible study. A few hours later I pulled it off and found my cool imprint. Today I simply added an organdy cheater's bow and stamped a sentiment in Concord Crush ink and used the same as a base.

Oh wow!! Gail, this is beautiful, a real monochrome delight. The sheer ribbon on the softly textured (I know it's not real texture, but the watercolor imprint certainly gives that look) is just perfection.
