Watercolour Trees

I have a card to show you that I made a while ago. It was a technique I learnt at a local craft club. Take a look at the card I will tell all!

I used some of the Naturals Ivory card to stamp on as it was the closest to watercolour paper I could find at the time. It's quite porous which is perfect for this technique. My stamp was inked with markers and then spritzed with water and then stamped. It gives a lovely blurred look to the image which worked very well with the tree from Serene Silhouettes and what's so great about this technique is that you get a totally different image every time you do it. The image in the middle was just stamped normally but still using the marker pens.
