Watercolor Background

The Crooked Stamper's Card
Here is the last card I made for an October 11th Birthday. I copied the technique of watercoloring the background from The Crooked Stamper. I love her blog as it is very inspirational and quite entertaining. She was right in that this is rather time-consuming, but I had a lot of fun doing it. TFL!

Supplies Used:
Paper: Watercolor Paper & scraps from my stash
Stamps: Penny Black Allover Pattern, Hampton Art Birthday Cake
Color: VersaMark,  Embossing Powder, Watercolor Pencils
Other: Tonic Studios Ticket Punch, SEI gems
