The watercolor trend has found it's way into the Studio!  Join us over the next four weeks as we ink up our paintbrushes (and fingers!) with Dr. Ph Martin's Hydrus Fine Art Watercolors.

Today I am using a resist technique with the Dr. Ph. Martin's Hydrus Watercolors.

Those fun, modern circles (Let's Chat by Penny Black) were stamped with Miskit to create the resist.

A tiny bit of Miskit was poured on a non-stick craft sheet and the stamp was "inked" by pouncing it in the liquid.  After the image was stamped and the Miskit dried, I added my watercolors. 
(Important Note:  Clean stamp as soon as you have finished stamping.)

Once the watercoloring was completed, the dried Miskit was rubbed away from the watercolor paper.

May Arts Ribbon was wrapped around a thin strip of cardstock for a textile embellishment.  This stiffened the ribbon allowing it to be elevated.

The second accent was created by stamping the chevron (Let's Chat) in two ink colors: Lilac Posies Memento Luxe and Aquatic Splash VersaMagic.  Tip/Hint:  By over lapping the stamping applications, a tricolor motif can be created.

The finished design was then stamped with a sentiment (Remember This) in Onyx Black VersaFine and then layered with Penny Black's Lattice White Embossed Paper on to a white card base.
