Water Techniques - IO January Release & Giveaway Day 2

Today, I am featuring three simple water techniques for Day 2 of the IO January Release! 

The first card was ink-blended and then sprinkled with water. The technique is simple, but it adds a lovely textured look.  

For the next card, the background was created by swishing cardstock through a puddle of watery ink.  

The Hold it Together stamp has large office desk images that are fun to use. I stamped the clip once on the background and a second time on cut cardstock in the shape of notepaper.

The last technique is watercolor.  I had great fun scattering the images and then painting them with watercolor.
