One Layer Tulip

Less is More
One Layer Card
Use A Color as your Background (No White, Kraft, Ivory or Black)

Moxie Fab World
Wonder of Watercolor Challenge

I used Chrissie's technique that she described on the Less is More Blog: Use a white craft ink then color with your water color pencils, paint with water to blend out your colors. The results are beautiful! So Thank You! for taking out of my comfort zone with that information. I have been wanting to enter Moxie Fab Water color challenge really had nothing till today (um last day!). I mean I did go out buy the water color pencils and everything (LOL). Anyway Hope you enjoy the card.
Happy Crafting

Stamps: Hero Arts
Cardstock and Inks: PTI/ Fresh Snow, Autumn Rose

This is beautiful Barbara, the shading on the leaves and petals is super... you chose a great stamp for this technique. I'm sure you'll use those pencils lots and lots!
Thanks so much

This is a really unusual effect Barb. It's so subtle and classy! I've never seen it before but I do have watercolor pencils so I think I'm going to have to give this a try, even though one layer cards intimidate me.
