Avocado Arts + Watercolor Flowers

     Hey there friends! Today I am sharing with you how to create a faux watercolor technique that you can try that doesn't require watercolor paint or even a paintbrush.I'm going to show you how to make this super easy effect using Avocado Arts newest set, Thoughts and Smiles

 Creating a watercolor look in your stamping is super easy!
It involves using just the back of your flower and ink!

Here's the steps to making this border trim of flowers.
1. Turn your stamp upside down and
 stick it to a clear block (so the flat side is up).
2. Apply ink.
3. Stamp on cardstock. 
4. Clean stamp and reapply stamp to clear base so it's now right-side up!
5. Apply ink to stamp and stamp over previously stamped image!

The trick to making your stamped image appear to look painted is to double stamp some of your flowers. You can stamp it once on the card and then re-stamp what's left of the ink back onto the card!

Well, that's it for me today. Make sure to visit my fabulous fellow Pit Crew to see more sneaky peeks of next month's set!
