Hi there Junkies!  

Using a masking technique and watercoloring, here's a card I created for today's post.

For this card, I used Margot's Flower, Sentimental Sayings and Crosshatch.  

I first stamped the flower on a watercolor panel with Distress Markers, coloring the various areas on the stamp with the markers starting with the lightest and working to the darker ones.  After applying each color, I used a lightly wet brush and blended the color.  Each layer of color was dry and another applied, building the layers and the intensity of the color.  

Using masking tape, I taped the panel and sponged some Distress Inks along just the edges.  While the masking tape was still in place I lightly inked and stamped the "Crosshatch" giving a little more detail and dimention to the area.  Removing the mask, I then stamped the sentiment.  

 I have a coupon for you if you'd like to get a 10% discount on the stamps I used as well as all TJ stamps (excluding the July release stamps).  Just use it at check out and enjoy your purchase.
