Hey there Junkies,

I've been inking up my fingers (literally) lately with my Brusho pigment ink powders....they are such fun to play with and create awesome backgrounds.  If you have them, you know what I'm talking about.  

This card was so much fun to make....

I used Strathmore Watercolor paper (cold press, 140#) for the first time.  I bought a 9x12 pad from ACMoore recently when they had a sale and this pad was only $5.00. I thought I couldn't lose at that price.  I've never used it before and was really pleased with the performance and the amount of water it could take without warping.  I'm not an expert in watercoloring, but for the price, this was great paper to use with the Brushos.  

I first gave the watercolor panel a good wash with clean water before sprinkling on the pigment powders, it allowed the crystals to "move".  If more water was needed, I spritzed it with water.  I added each color separately, and they blended very well.  

The stamp I'm using for this is #SD716 "Something Will Grow".  I love the sentiment that is attached to this floral image, and the bg certainly shows off that stamp well, I think.  I splattered some watered down black acrylic paint once the panel was dry and that finished off the design.  So easy, but I love it.  

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you can get your own hands inky soon!

I've been saying for a LONG time I NEED to buy those powders (and I will) especially after seeing this fabulous background you achieved here SS. Love the stamp and sentiment you have used here. Great finish with the black splatters.
