Watercolour background with inkers

For last month's Paper Dolls I show cased different ways of watercolouring. The first was just the usual way using the ink pads to add colour to an image but the other one I demonstrated was from a cool technique I saw on Spiltcoasters HERE.
I used some re-inkers on a plastic lid (Early Espresso, So Saffron and Cherry Cobbler) and then added them to gloss paper with the aqua painter. You need to have the aqua painter really wet to give you the best results. Stamp your desired greeting in Stazon and you have a very groovy and pretty speckie background!
I was super excited with how it turned out, especially with the wonderful colours in the World Spectacular Product Suite.... SO LOVE THIS SUITE!!!

Have you seen the Scalloped Tulle Ribbon from the mini.... soooo pretty and a perfect addition to ANY project (especially Christmas of course!!)
Then another of my FAV goodies at the moment is the ticket punch which co-ordinates with the stamp in the "You're Amazing" set.
Well I best be off and attend to my sweet baby girl, have a wonderful weekend!
