Faux Watercoloring

This weeks PapertreyInk challege was really fun. I had been wanting to make a card with acorns for some reason and this was perfect. I used my Jar Fall Fillers set for the acorn and sentiment and was really excited to use my new distress ink from Ranger, Gathered Twigs from the limited edition set. I love that brown color. So I stamped my image and then used a watercolor brush to fill in the acorns with the brown. Then I had to give it a spray of glimmer mist and that made it even more watercolor like. You can see it better if you click on the cardl. Oh, I also used my new spiral notebook page die. So much fun!
