Grungy Monday 8

This week the Grungy Monday challenge is to try The September 2008 Technique Challenge from Tim Holtz. Basically it is watercolor stamping with ink. The images I used are from Fred Mullet. One thing Tim said is to just touch the stamp to the paper after it is inked and misted. I think I may have pressed the sea ferns too hard especially at the top of the long nose butterfly fish. The one by the parrot fish is a little better. Tim said this technique would take practice. The sentiment is from the Stampscapes collection.

I think it's great. Reminds me of a coral reef where you might have to look to spy the fish. Beautiful!

Absolutely gorgeous, Barbara! I love the Fred Mullet images-- they're perfect for the brushless watercolor technique. The colors you used are so striking and the sentiment is just right. Beautiful job!
