(2014 c50) Unity “Inspire Words” Fall Watercolor Background

For today’s card I used Unity Stamps called “Inspire Words by Donna Downey” after making my watercolor background.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I first sprayed my watercolor paper with water and then touched surface with very wet watercolors and watched it flow!  I love this part! When it was dry I took the negative sheet of tissue paper that I had cut my leaves from  and applied it over the page with Matte Medium by Claudine Helmuth.  then I took the leafs cut out of the tissue & colored them further with  Distress inks by Tim Holtz from Ranger and applied them with Matte Medium by Claudine Helmuth also. Then I stamped the words from Unity Stamps with Veramark ink & embossed  with embossing powders.
