Hi friends!  Happy Monday!  I'm sharing a card today using a cool technique to achieve this watercolor look on this gingko leaf stamp.  I saw this technique somewhere online (can't remember who/where) and needed to try it out myself.

I took my Catherine Pooler mini inks and smooshed each color onto my craft mat in rainbow order.  I placed them pretty close together when smooshing and then spritzed it with water.  I then used the smoosed ink as my ink pad.  I love the effect this gives with minimal effort.

For my background I stamped the Wild Thing background stamp using Midnight ink.  I popped up the gingko leaf using black fun foam.

I am sharing this over at Time Out Challenges: Nature.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

  1. Always great cards. You are consistently good. Consider this is a giant thumbs up and several hearts!!!

  2. What a cool technique, Kristie ... those bright, vibrant gingko leaves are just delicious against the black and white irregular polka dots ... and what a great sentiment! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)
