I made these cards for Heidiís Color Theory Challenge: Analogous Colors, http://duhnproductions.com/forum/index.php?topic=520.0. I totally CASED her beautiful card (http://www.duhnproductions.com/Pics/displayimage.php?album=52&pid=916#top_display_media). Thank you, Heidi. Iíve had this stamp for a long time, and this is the first time Iíve used it.
I used the Versamark Resist Technique. I was experimenting with LaBlance Thick Specialty Stamping Paper, cardstock which Tim Holtz said is the same as Rangerís Specialty Cardstock. I didnít like it for the watercolors. They were absorbed too quickly to blend them, leaving very distinctive marks (covered up by the bows). It worked great with the Distress Inks.
