Surprise!


Hello everyone! As you can see, I'm still having so much fun playing with my Holtz Distress Markers.  I grabbed for another piece of watercolor paper and this pretty new 6x6 My Mind's Eye paper.

In order to watercolor, you have to stamp your image and add embossing powder and heat it up. This ensures that the ink will not be affected by the water and make a big smudgy mess.

I kept the layout extremely simple here, I just added the sentiment "surprise" using the Sentiment Strips Die-namics.  A dash of Distress Ink to the edge of the die helps it to stand out across the neutral background.
