Faux Watercolor Lettering

Dear Ones~
Just a quick post tonight. I'm getting ready to go to Lansing to spend the weekend with the Princes and their mom and dad. We are taking the boys to the Grand Rapids Museum to see the Robot Exhibit. Good times. Himself is staying home with the dog.

Today's offering was made for the Make It Monday Challenge over at Papertrey Ink. We were taught how to do faux watercolor lettering with some stamping, ink, and a paint brush.

Here's my card:
This was really fun to do, and not very hard. The main thing is to have the right kind of stamp.
Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Ivory and Wild Orchid Card Stock
Strathmore Water Color Paper
GKD Autumn Landscape Patterned Paper
PTI Graceful Greetings Stamp Set
Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8
GKD Ink in Wild Lilac and Lovely Lavender
Nuvo Crystal Drops
Martha Punches

Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments. Have a lovely weekend.
