watercolor challenge

Happy Thursday friends!
I've got another art journal project to show you today.
This month Inspiration Emporium is doing a watercolor challenge, perfect for my Dylusions spray inks and my Ranger fine tip water pen!
I've discovered you don't need many supplies at all to do these pages. I aways write down my supplies as I'm working on them and I have very few, just the spray inks, Archival ink and a stamp set or 2! The only paper I use is cardstock if I want to stamp and cut something out. I haven't used any patterened paper yet, the horror, LOL! I did use some pink and cinnamon Stickles on her color and the other ones hair bow.
I sprayed the pages with water first and then sprayed on my inks to get them running, closed the pages to get the ink on both pages and then dabbed off the excess with a paper towel. I used one of Tim's tricks of spraying my fingers and flecking the pages to get the water splotches. I dry it all with my heat tool.
I stamped and cut out the mushrooms and girls and watercolored them with my Dylusional spray inks and the waterbrush filled with water. I outline things here and there with my white Gelly Roll pen.
The sets I used are Dylusionals The Right Words, Love Struck Lucy, Further Round the Edge and Doolally Dorris.
Now it's your to upload your watercolor project at the IE blog for a chance to win $50 IE bucks, WOOHOO, that's a great prize! Don't forget about my coupon code ieirisgarden for your 10% discount on your IE goodies!
