Water Coloring!!!

Good Evening Everyone!
I sure hope you all had a great day. Mine was busy
and full of laughs with the grandkids watching Rio 2.
  Now I'm pooped.
I'm taking online classes for watercoloring. Just really learning.
 I skimmed through and only really watched the videos 
that I liked the projects. Not all water coloring appeals to me, 
so I took what I liked and left the rest behind.
Wanted to get these two cards posted before I forgot.
On the first one, I used a stamp set duo by Gina K Designs 
" My Most Favorite "using Black Onyx ink.
.  I also used Jelly Bean, and Black Onyx card stock and Ribbon 
from Gina K Designs. The top layer is water color paper. 


 This next card was fun to create. First I stamped the
 Magnolia from the Stately Flowers 3 set
 by Melanie Muenchenger.
 I masked the flower with rubber cement & I used
 Gina K Designs Powder Blue and
 Navy Inks to do my background water color. 
I love that I can use my Gina K Inks
 for water coloring. I then used water color pencils 
on the flower. Once dried I used Carolyn King's Elegant Flourishes
 stamped in versa mark.
 Heat set. Using Gina K Designs Black Ink I stamped the sentiment
 from the stamp set "Lots Of Lines" by Beth Silaika. 
That panel is on top of a Black Onyx card stock panel 
then wrapped Ivory ribbon
 around that and layered it on top of a Base
 of Turquoise Sea
 pure luxury card stock from Gina K Designs.
 Added some black pearls from my stash.


Thanks so much for stoping by.
 All comments are greatly appreciated.
Have a wonderful day!!!
Happy Stamping or What ever
Makes You Happy…  :)

Buzzed down here after viewing the Blog Hop and when I saw the magnolia card I had to comment - it's gorgeous and your background is fabulous. I'm impressed with how perfectly you masked the magnolia with rubber over- or under-coverage at all! I also like the ribbon treatment on the first card and if my husband were still living I'd snap up that expression in a split second! TFS
