Water Coloring Trio

A trio of card featuring water coloring ahead - not standard water coloring either.   Each of these was for a DTGD challenge. 
On this one, I started off by white embossing the Heart Splatter background stamp.   Then I sponged pink ink on to the base.   The final step was to wet the Heart Splatter stamp with water by filling a shallow dish with water and laying a paper towel in it, then using that as an ink pad.   This technique called water stamping created the water spots.
Stamps:  Your Next Stamp Heart Splatter stamp and Lovestruck, Ink:  SU, Other:  White Embossing Powder

For the next two, I sponged ink on the card stock, then inked up the background stamp, sprayed water on the stamp and then stamped the paper. Lightly misting the stamp with water lets some of the images stay whole, while others blur.

Stamps:   Your Next Stamp Smiley Happy Critter Crew Set Two and sentiment from Party Animals, Your Next Stamp Flower Splatter Stamp Dies:  Your Next Stamp Stitched Tag Set Two dies, Stitched Rectangle Dies, and Fishtail/Banner Die Set OneInk:   SU and CS:  PTI
Stamps:   Your Next Stamp Snowfall, Dies:  MFT Butterfly dies and Your Next Stamp stitched rectangle dies, Other:  PTI Ribbon
This was my first time doing so much water coloring, but it was fun and I found myself using it more than I expected, give it a try yourself!
