Watercolor Backgrounds

Happy Monday...well, the day is almost over, but I just wanted to share the watercolor fun I had today.
I started with Koh-I-Noor watercolors but it was difficult to get a nice amount of color with these.
I liked Lynette's Angora watercolors much better.
I decided to try Distress Reinkers for the 2nd and 3rd pieces.
I just touched the tip of the eye dropper applicator to my craft sheet 
and added a bit of water with my brush. 
Much easier! 
Plus I have a ton of these in lots of colors.
I've grouped my work in twos: background, then stamped card.
Used Versafine Black Onyx ink to stamp the images.

Koh-I-Noor watercolors, Reinkers, brush, water
Viva Decor Pearl Pen Transparent
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Stamps: Stampin' Up!, Stampers Anonymous, Hampton Arts, Paper Impressions, Inkadinkado

Love the piece with the face. The red 'dripping' down really sets it off. Nice job.
