Just messin' around with some ink and water color paper.....what do you think of the results?

Do you ever need a card right away and nothing in your stash seems quite right?  Well, that was where I was a couple of night ago. 

So, I pulled out all the retiring 2016 In-Color ink pads, card stock and washi tape, told them I would miss them, then went to work.

I chose Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagoon ink pads.  I squeezed the lids to transfer ink to the top to use as a palette.  I wet a piece of water color paper with my aqua painter brush and began streaking the colors across the paper.  Do you an aqua painter brush?  It is such a handy paint brush tool that hold water in the barrel.  If you need one, click here to see them.   They come 2 to a pack.

I weighted down the edges of the paper with some clear blocks and let the ink dry before stamping "thank you" with the retiring single stamp, 135377, Watercolor Thank You.  You can order the stamp here.  After I mounted the stamped water color paper onto a piece of Tangelo Twist card stock I decided it needed something.  I tore a strip of Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow washi tape to add at the bottom, The washi tape is 50% off - that is just $4.00 and available here.

All items used for this card are on the retiring list except for the Aqua Painters.  If you are interested in purchasing any of them while they are still available, click here.

I hope you try this easy card.  Leave me a comment with the colors you chose.  

Thanks for stopping by today.
