Technique: Watercolor Spritz

After trying this with a variety of stamps...I am convinced that I must find a watercolor class. I missed the last one that was online, and hope now that I have more time I will be able to take the next one found.  I discovered that a post-it mask will bleed color through it. But I had fun experimenting and managed to produce something I could use. I adore watercolor and have been thrilled to see it done so beautifully. More practice for me!

All product used (with exception of the watercolor card stock) are from Close To My Heart.
Stamp: Happy Autumn; inks: Buttercup, Honey, Gold Rush, Olive, New England Ivy; paper: White Daisy, Crème Brulee, New England Ivy; ribbon: mini chevron. I used my score pal on the sanded back panel, and a Fiskars punch for the edge.

I took the challenge and help from Just Us Girls #245 and rotated the sketch from Atlantic Hearts #59.

School is out...I am officially a retired high school social studies teacher. On to volunteer activities, grandsons, gardening, traveling, and most certainly crafting!

There was quite a mess in the craft room though as I had been making lots of cards for students and staff these past few weeks without time to pick up after myself.  When you clean and sort all kinds of delightful things show up.  This lovely textured paper and washi tape were made for each other and the Freshly Made Sketch.  And I was able to use my new Verve stamp for the sentiment.- just love that blended font look.
