Watercoloring with Feathers.

I am so excited to share this with you today! I love the simplicity of this CAS(E) this sketch! #163. Right away I had this idea brewing in my head.   

This is what I came up with here below. My daughter is tickled by the color combination of pink and blue and so am I.
This look was simply created by inking the feather stamp, spraying the stamp with water, not too much water and then stamping it onto the cardstock. I used Tim Holtz distress inks but this also works with regular dye ink pads.

I was having so much fun that I just kept on stamping. I didn't use water color paper, I used Classic Crest Cover Solar White cardstock 110lb, even thought I used very little water I got very minimal warping and the wetness or color didn't even wet through the other side of the paper : ) Yay! I wanted to make this a one layer card so I thought of ironing the paper to flatten out the tiny bit of warping that happened, then I saw my laminator...well, can you guess my next thought? Yep, that is what I did. I ran it can twice through the laminator and then finish the card with the score lines.

I had stamped these feather above on left over cardstock so adhered those panels onto a card base to finish them.  I hope that you get to play too with ink, paper and this sketch. Thanks for stopping by.
