More Watercolor Backgrounds

Continuing in my watercolor mode, I am using Distress reinkers and Dylusions sprays as my watercolor medium. I added a few drops of ink, one color at a time, onto my craft sheet. I dipped a paintbrush into a jar of water, then into the ink, swishing it to mix. Then I "painted" my watercolor paper. Repeated this process with each color. At the end, when I had used up most of the ink on the craft sheet, I placed the paper directly onto the craft sheet for the splotch-y look you see at the end.

 Update, May 7, 2015 for some reason my images were missing today. I added them back, hopefully they'll stay put.

 Distress reinkers: dried marigold, spun sugar, worn lipstick, shabby shutters, peeled paint, scattered straw,
wild honey, barn door, aged mahogany
Dylusions ink spray: London blue, postbox red, fresh lime, pure sunshine
Stamps: Stampin' Up!, ERA Graphics, Dawn Houser/Inkadinkado, Suzy Toronto, Hampton Arts, Stampers Anonymous, Autumn Leaves, Rubber Stampede
