Happy Little Stampers September '17 Watercolor Challenge


Happy September to you! Oh yes, it's September all ready.
Kids in school, temperature cooling (Hopefully), and the colors change
from bright pastels to fiery hues! Love it!
And, to launch September HLS has a challenge for all the 
Watercolor fans, Anything Goes with an Optional Twist - Spritz




Here's some inspiration for you, stamping and watercoloring with your water based inks.
My sentiment is from Year of the Psalms April from PTI, stamped in Ranger's 
Archival Waterproof black ink. 
The berries are also PTI, a set called Beautiful Berries: Summer, which allows 
2 step stamping.
The inked images were spritzed with water before stamping on watercolor paper.
While still wet, the 2nd layer of defining stamps were added, bleeding just a bit,
not enough to blur the definition.
Some added color around the berries, and leaves, and then some Lindy's Stamp Gang
Starburst dropped onto the card, randomly.

Hope you play along this month. Remember winners receive a $25. gc to the HLS shop.
See you in the linep!
