Make It Monday #36: Faux Watercoloring

Greetings!  I couldn't let yet another Make It Monday go by without making a card for it.  This week's challenge is to do faux watercoloring, by using a blender to watercolor the stamped image.  Here's mine:

It's a very simple card.  The image, from Year Of Flowers Collection, was colored on the stamp with SU markers in several colors, then stamped on watercolor paper.  Then a brush blender containing water was used to brush through the colors and blend them.  I added a little rust colored glitter to the centers after the image dried.  The image was die cut using Spellbinders Labels One.  Then a slice of patterned paper (PTI Text-Style 2009 Bitty Dot Basics) was placed on a background of Spring Rain stamped with the sentiment from Healing Touch Sentiments, a mat hand cut from handmade mulberry paper using the die as a template was added, and the final touch was the addition of a few amber crystals.

Thanks for checking it out!
