Faber-Castell, Day 4

Today's card features another great new Hero Arts stamp along with Faber-Castell's Design Memory Craft Art GRIP Aquarelle watercolor pencils. I stamped the image with black ink on watercolor paper. I colored in the image using the watercolor pencils and a light wash of water with a very small paint brush. Once dry, I added dot details with a white gel pen and a PITT Artist pen in black. The background was created using Distress Ink (Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, and Broken China). Finally, I stamped the script text using Pumice Stone. I dabbed the stamp with a baby wipe before stamping to remove some of the ink. All Stamps Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by! See you tomorrow with some fun links. :)
