Stamped Critter Background

Hello everyone!

I have a new Card for you today featuring some of the older and some new Gerda Steiner Design stamp sets. I used these four sets to create a stamped watercolored background: Just SentimentsHappy HoppyLucky DuckHow are Ewe. It's a fun technique, which I wanted to share with you :)

I stamped all of these cute critters and elements on a piece of watercolor paper (Versafine works very well with water). Then I looked for a few beautiful Distress Inks to color my elements. When you put several layers of water on each other, you'll get that messy watercolor look. I also splashed some waterdroplets on it plus some white ink splashes. A few lighter dots add more interest to your card! :)
Oh and I like to use black sentiments - specially on a colorful background! (there might be a comma  missing between "birthday" and "awesome"... )

See you tomorrow!
