Lawnscaping Challenge – Try a New Technique

Today I broke out my distress ink cubes to watercolor with for the Lawnscaping “Try a New Technique” challenge.  I hadn’t had a chance to use the “Soy Happy” stamp set so I thought the two would be a good merge.

I started with the new Tim Holtz stencil called “Mesh” using old paper distress ink.  After watercoloring all the images on watercolor paper stamped with archival ink I fussy cut them and went around with a black pen to clean up the edges (for more on how to do this check out my other post). I arranged the images and stamped the heart coloring it with Pigma Archival Brush Pen in red.
