February is over.  OVER!

Weird.

If you haven't tried your hand at watercoloring, you MUST!  I am not a painter.  I wouldn't consider myself an artist.  But I can dip paint in water and splatter it around.  That's enough for me.

The key to this type of cardmaking and scrapbooking (watercolor background) is to WAIT until the ink is dry before you stamp anything on it.  Patience is key.

Another helpful hint:  I stamp my little clear block into my ink and then get the ink off the block with my aqua painter.  This keeps the inside if your stamp pad clean AND I think it's easier to get the amount of color you need for your watercoloring.
