Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop

IMG_5005<


Can you believe that we are already at the May Papertrey Ink Blog Hop?
I am sure that Christmas was just yesterday!




This month the theme is to create a project using the colours aqua and melon. I decided to play around with a bit of watercolouring for the hop today.  I put some ink from my ink pads on to my craft mat and spritzed the ink with a bit of water.  Then I picked up the watered down ink with my stamps.  The sentiment was stamped directly with ink.  I wish the camera was kinder to my photo because the colours are beautiful in real life.

Enjoy the rest of the hop!
