Fantastic! I love what you did and the tutorial is excellent! What paper did you use to stamp your image on? I wondered what paper held the water well as you colored?

Absolutely magical watching the little bear come to life as you coloured her. I particularly like the way you varied the colours & created a whole range of cards. The detail on each is delightful & I love the way that lacey circle adds a frame to the offset circular cut out panel. Lovely effect & interest in this that had me glued to your tutorial - that faux stitching is superbly effective.

Hi grandmabonnie, I used Bazzill Basics Paper smooth white cose 10-1005, the secret is in the water brush, there is a valve that controls the amount of water that flows through the brush so the paper does not get saturated, you can get them from Zig/kuretake they are called brush H2O code WSBR02. Hope this helps.
