Watercolor Fun for Use Your Stash Blog Hop

It's time for our monthly Use Your Stash Blog Hop!  We are a group of Close to My Heart consultants who are trying to use up some of our craft supplies.  If you are coming from Marilee Eatough's blog you are on the right track.

(If you get lost along the way you can go back to Paige Dolecki's blog for the entire lineup of blogs).

I followed Freshly Made Sketch #191 to make this card:

First I wet the watercolor paper with water.  I placed acrylic blocks onto the Grey Wool and Golden Ember stamp pads and spritzed with water for my "paint".  I used a heat tool to dry the panel before I inked up the embossing folder with Topiary ink and then pressed the folder closed with the watercolor paper inside.  Last I stamped Happy Father's Day in Black ink and then again with Versamark and Clear Embossing Powder.  (This is so easy to do with the MISTI stamp tool!)

Close to My Heart products used:
     Golden Ember Ink (retired)
     Grey Wool Ink (retired)
