Hellooo! It's time for some fresh inspiration over at STAMPlorations, and today I'm trying out a watercolouring technique I saw by Stacy Hutchinson of Tatterednestdesigns.com (sorry, can't get a link to work, you'll have to search), and I can tell you I'm addicted!
Basically, smoosh ink pads onto a craft mat, and that becomes your inkpad. Easy peasy lemon squeeze. Draw in some colour from the outlines with a wet brush or pick up some colour from the craft mat and paint in.
I used Shery's Cup of Blooms 1 but any similar image will work, as you will see in future posts ;) For the Happy Birthday sentiment I smooshed some card onto the inked craft mat then once it had dried I die-cut the words.
