Watercoloring

Taking a quick break from the Happy Trails cards. I'm actually waiting for the sun to come out so that I can get a good photo of my card. We've had so much rain that we're going to have to build an ark to get out of here!!! I have to say, the weather this summer has stunk! Once September comes I start stressing over the fact that winter is coming and I swear it just left.
ok, Moving on...

I decided to try my hand at watercoloring again. I'm no pro, but I certainly have fun with it! I don't think you have to be a pro to make a card that looks nice!!! To watercolor this image from Growing Green, I simply squeezed my ink pads while they were closed & then opened the ink pad and used the ink in the lid to color. It's that easy!!!

Do you have any tips on watercoloring and how to get the best result? I'd love for you to share!

Have a good one!
