Another rainy day in the Indianapolis area - I feel sorry for the Mini-Marathon Runners and the Kentucky Derby fans and "runners," too, just south of us in Louisville. Good day for stampin'! I've just finished up the samples for next Saturday's Stamp Camp.
This card was inspired by a tutorial at FrenchieStamps and it really is quick. Details below.

- Shake some Brusho Crystal Colour* - remember you don't need much - onto a piece of Watercolor Card Stock, cut to 3 x 3-3/4. Use 2-3 colors, at most. I used Prussian Blue and Yellow. Spritz with a fair amount of water and with your Aqua Painter or a wet brush spread the color across the paper! Let it dry - that's it! If you want to dry with a heat gun, the color will lighten a little.
- When your color-washed piece is completely dry, pat with your Embossing Buddy and stamp desired image from Dandelion Wishes in Versamark and emboss with Black Embossing Powder. You can also emboss the black stamped "For you" if you like - I did not. The "For you" is from the "Let it Ride" stamp set.
- Adhere Watercolor CS to a piece of Whisper White 3-1/4 x 4.
- Cut a strip of Granny Apple Green CS (or any color you like) 5-1/2 x 1-1/4 and run through any embossing folder you like - I used Seaside - and adhere to Blueberry Bushel card base. Add Watercolor layers with Dimensionals and Floral Romance Seal.
*Brusho is retiring, but we will have Pigment Sprinkles in colors like Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Mango Melody, and Melon Mambo when the 2019-20 Annual Catalog goes live! So, if you already have Brusho, you will have lots of colors to play with.Products
