Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge March 2020

It's crazy how the end of the month sneaks up ... I mean, January took forever to be over and although February has an extra day, it just flew by. Weren't we just eating Valentine's Day chocolates?

Anyway, it's time for a new challenge at Happy Little Stampers ~ Watercolour Challenge. This month, the challenge is

Here's my card

For me, this is the easiest way to achieve a watercolour look. I started with Stampin' Up's Artistically Asian stamp set. I inked up the stamp using Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and spritzed the inked up stamp with water before applying it to 96 lb bristol. A couple of areas, didn't look watercolour-ish enough, so I reinked and re-spritzed. I love the look and it's so easy!

I added a sentiment from Mama Elephant's Tiny Ninja stamp set. I trimmed the panel down slightly so that I could mat with black cardstock .

How will you be inspired this month?
