Expressionistic card

all images © SU! 1990-2007

The technique is from the Technique Junkies newsletter and is called Expressionistic Watercolor, I think. {if that's not right, can someone message me w/ the correct name? Thanks.}

Can you say super easy? Easy, yet yields gorgeous results! Sorry to report that both the Paint Prints stamp set and the sentiment stamp are retired SU. But You could substitute another flower and sentiment and get the same fab result.

The actual technique instructs you to use a spectrum pad, but it works well with a one color pad too. I prefer to use a cardstock that is a bit heavier, so this card was made using Confetti White. The extra thickness helps the card hold up better when you spritz it with water.

happy stampin'

Paint Prints happens to be one of my all time favorite sets! Your card is so pretty what an easy one for the holidays.
