mft warm winter hugs + distress ink watercolor

There's always something so beautiful & perfect about Stacey Yacula's designs and the Warm Winter Hugs set is no exception!

And since they are so amazing, I often feel intimidated. Where do I start? How should I color them? So they sit uninked on my desk and that's no good!

I finally decided to take a really simple technique and just go for it!

I stamped the penguin & turtle image in Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch and then swiped the ink pad on an acrylic block. I sprayed my block with a little clean water and used it as my palette to watercolor my critters.

I kept my painting really simple and just enjoyed it!

I stamped the pond but left a few parts uninked so there wouldn't be any harsh lines across my critters. And then painted it.

Finally I added a sentiment across the bottom and a few inky splatters.
