Stamp the nature scene and sentiment onto watercolor paper with Staz-On ink. Let dry.
Squeeze the closed ink pad to press ink onto the lid. Watercolor the images using the Aqua Painter and ink from the ink pad lid. Use the following inks to color this image.
Old Olive – Evergreens and grass
Soft Suede – Tree trunk and branches
Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Cajun Craze were “dotted” in a totally random pattern onto the large tree after first wetting the area with water only
Pool Party – Water (let dry)
Crumb Cake – the banks and sandy areas. More concentrated on the rocks.
Wink of Stella – over the water area.
After the image is completely dry, adhere the colored image to the Cajun Craze panel with liquid glue and then to card base.
