Love this idea!  Simple and pretty cards.

Comment by Jeannette M. Burnett on April 20, 2017 at 1:04pm

I love this! It makes such a beautiful background. After the paper is dry and say you stamp a flower or butterfly could you color the flower or butterfly in. I am going to have to try it. I have several different ways to color it in. I'll have to see which one works best. Thank for the tutorial.

Thanks for great new ideas especially using acetate from stamp set.   Now  I can play around with the different techniques.

Comment by Janice Ashby on April 20, 2017 at 12:43pm

That looks like fun!  Love all three samples.  I'll have to give this a try with my reinkers since I don't have many water based markers anymore.  Gina, I missed seeing you come on the camera like you usually do.
