Watercolor look 5th Avenue

This is just a fabulous technique.  Not sure whose idea it was but I've seen it on several blogs.

I stamped the flower from the 5th Avenue floral set with versa mark on shimmery white cardstock, embossed with white embossing powder and heat set.  With water in a spray bottle, I sprayed the back and front of the stamped cardstock.  Using 2 colors of ink (from reinkers) and an aqua painter, drop ink unto the images any way you please. Let dry.

Recipe for the top card
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Something To Celebrate (hostess set)
Ink:  Elegant Eggplant, Versa Mark, Baja Breeze
Cardstock: Naturals White, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Big Shot, Embossing folders Square Lattice & Framed Tulips (new Mini), Lots of tags sizzlits,  Corner rounder.

Other colors I've used with the Baja Breeze are Cherry Cobbler & Bravo Burgundy.
