Ink Smooching

Hi, I have a quick card to share with you today.
Over at Stamp Nation, they are having a challenge,
"Just add Water" so it is any project that you have
used water to make.

                  I love working with watercolor and inks and all the good stuff.
  So here is what I came up with. 

Luckily I do not need a sympathy card right now, but I like
to have some on hand.
For this card, I use Distress Oxides in Wilted Violet, Faded Jeans, and Broken China.  I just smooched some ink on a piece of acetate
and then sprayed it with water, then smooched it onto
a piece of watercolor paper.   I like using the acetate because
you can see what is going on with your colors and then
press or move to get the look you like.
I then mounted in on cardstock to piece up a couple of the
colors.  I used my MISTI to stamp using a couple
Unity Stamps.  The watercolor paper is very rough so by
using the MISTI I was able to stamp it a few times.  I used 
Catherine Pooler Black Jack ink which is a dark gray.

Thanks for stopping to take a peek, hope you are
having a fabulous day.
