Watercolouring

Happy Monday everyone. What a wonderful way to start the week. The challenge on Splitcoast today is to make a card using a technique called 'Re-inkers Watercolouring'. Stampin' Up sell tiny bottles of reinker for your ink pads. The technique is to take a few drops of reinker and use a watercolouring brush and water to shade your image. I decided to use an old favourite of mine called Toile Blossoms. Here's the recipe:

Recipe:
Cardstock: PTI Ivory, SU Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom
Ink: Image stamped in Palette's Burnt Umber. Reinkers in Mellow Moss, Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa, Regal Rose, Blush Blossom, Pretty in Pink, Distress Ink in Old Paper
Stamp Set: Toile Blossoms, French Script
Accessories: Reinkers, SU Mellow Moss Grosgrain Ribbon
