Today's techique is one I taught at my store a few years ago. I learned it from Tim Holtz, and it's called brushless watercolor. Basically it involves dabbing the corner of several colors of ink pads onto a large stamp, spritzing with water, then drying quickly with an embossing gun.
I used Adirondack ink pads for their earthy, rich colors. The tops come off of the pad base with just a little twist, and snap back on.
I am entering these cards in the following challenges:

Hope you find some time to check out these challenges and maybe enter some. You never know, you just might win some great prizes. I won last week's House That Stamps Built challenge with my fall card, and got a certificate for $25 worth of Repeat Impressions stamps!!!! I'm so excited, and can't wait to go shopping for my freebies!
I finished another image, which I didn't make a card for yet. Hopefully, I will get it made tomorrow, so stop back soon to check out that card. Also, I posted a couple of posts since last Tuesday, so you might want to scroll down and check them out. There is a fall card and a halloween card.
Blessings and peace,
