Variety of cards using inks & Water

Hi, I been busy playing around with my inks and
various mediums and water to see what I could come up with.
I will share several cards here instead of doing a bunch of 
different posts.

Over at StampNation they are having a challenge that is
"just add water" well that was perfect for me to  play with
inks and water.

This first card I used Catherine Pooler inks in the colors
Mint to Be and Pixie Dust for the background.
I sponged the colors on a piece of watercolor paper but
was not too happy with it so I thought what the heck and I 
told my water bottle and sprayed it and wow I loved the
effect that made.  This card was actually made following
a sketch over at the Unity Show & Tell Facebook page.
I stamped the flower from Unity Stamps and then I took my waterbrush and added a little more color to the flower. 

The next card is using another Unity Stamp.  
I tried the loose or messing coloring then sprayed it with water and let the water move the color around.  I was not really happy with it till I cut it out with a GinaMarie die and then mounted it on a coral colored paper.

OK, and up next is another watercolor background plus
using a stencil to pick some of the color back up using water.  I
stamped the peacock, from the Naturally Inspired using various Catherine Pooler inks and mounted it on a die count out also from the Naturally Inspired collection. 

And last but not least I attempted the no-line watercoloring technique.
I love this rose stamp from Stampin Up and thought it was simple enough to try 
the no-line technique.  In the end I outlined the rose with a 
color glitter pen and it looks real pretty in person.

Well that is it for today, I sure hope you enjoy all my card, 
let me know what you think and which is your favorite one.
