Watercolor Wicking

Can you believe it's almost here?  Thanksgiving is this week and I can't wait to sit down and eat with a fork and knife.  Life gets so busy that I often eat food you can grab and go like tacos or sandwiches.  So, I am anxious to have hot food that is served on a plate!

In honor of this week's holiday I pulled out some fall tones to stamp a watercolor card to say "hello." For this technique I stamped images in Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, and Wild Wasabi on Watercolor Paper.  Then with a Stampin' Mini Mister filled with water I squirt the images just enough to get the ink to wick and blend.
