MDS Watercoloring WOW!

I was over on My Digital Studio on my lunch break today when I was so totally inspired by a post by Cheryl Adams where she shared the following card .... I have had the Elements of Style stamp set for months and used it several times to make my own Designer Series Paper as a tone on tone background ... however I did not think we could 'watercolor' in the MDS program until I saw Cheryl's card and had the 'ah ha why didn't I think of that' ... and so I just spent my lunch giving it a go with this weeks Colour Q #71 challenge.

So here is my MDS Elements of Style watercolour inspired card for today ... featuring Crumb Cake aka Kraft, blushing Bride, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette and White!


I am not sure how exactly Cheryl did her watercolor image as there were no instructions at the time - but my 'guess' was that the watercolor trick was to use the Extreme Elements 'splash' image as your watercolor tool and just adjust the size and coloring shadings of multiple stamps to get the fill that you desired - at least that is how I accomplished it in my attempt!

This was so much fun - I will definitely be attempting with some of the other similar 'black and white' images to see if you can 'colour' them in - I think it looks awesome! Thanks again Cheryl for the inspiration!
