(2014 c58) Unity Stamped Tissue on Watercolor BG


For my grandaughter birthday card I started by coloring the background with watercolors on watercolor paper.  Then I used the Technique of stamping on tissue paper and coloring on the back side with Sharpie markers. I Stamped with And For A Moment by Unity Stamp Co.   Then I applied the image to the water color background with Matte Medium.  You can see more instructions for this Technique on a previous post I did as seen HERE.  Today’s tissue image did not need the white gesso applied behind it like the previous example.  I just love how the green background shows through the tissue under the horse’s belly.
