Beauty everywhere,

Oh, the rain has made it all green and beautiful. The sound of lawn mower and the smell of fresh cut grass felt so good. It was a long time since I heard and smell them.

And then, look at the Dostamper Stars 179 inspiration? It screams spring all over. I want to create a watercolor feel card, and I believe I did it. How? Well, I used watercolor paper, spritz water all over it, blotted out a bit and went about stamping. When the paper got a bit dry, I spritz some more water and the stamped images got better and better. This type of technique works really well with 2-steps stamp such as the What I love stamp set.  Actually, this is a 3-step stamp, but I only did 2 as my goal was to have the watercolor effect and not a sharper image. Love this technique and I will be using it more soon.

Thank you for visiting today. Get more inspiration form all the other Dostamper Stars and please do come again. Be well
