Mod Squad Challenge - Lose the Lines

Dear Ones~
This week it's my turn to host the Mod Squad Challenge, and I have chosen to do some no line watercoloring. HERE is a video by Melanie Muenchinger showing this technique. Basically the image is stamped in a very light color and then colored in so that the line become invisible.

Our sponsor this week is Gina K Designs and Stamp TV

Here is my card:
I chose to use the GKD stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger called A Year of Flowers 1 for this card. I stamped the images 3 times on watercolor paper with Old Paper Distress Ink and then did some watercoloring with my Mission Gold Watercolors. Then I fussy cut everything out and adhered the images to my card. The background die cut is from a Mixed Media die set by Tim Holtz. The greeting is from Theresa Momber's set called The Wetlands. I finished everything off with some Nuvo Jewel Drops.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Dusty Rose and White Card Stock
Strathmore 140# Watercolor Paper
Tim Holtz Mixed Media Die
GKD A Year of Flowers 1 Stamp Set
GKD The Wetlands Stamp Set
Old Paper Distress Ink
Mission Gold Watercolors
Nuvo Jewel Drops
