Stay Wild Birthday ~ A Fun Stampers Journey Card

It was my brother's birthday yesterday, so I created a card for him.  One thing he enjoys is rock climbing so I thought I'd make him a card of the outdoors and of course there had to be a mountain on it.

The picture below shows how my card started.  I used the stamp Stay Wild and inked it up with Lemon Grass, Green Olive and then Fresh Forest.  The first time I inked it up I made sure I inked only half of the stamp and didn't ink up the bottom of  it either.  I just slid each of the ink pads across it one after the other, then stamped it onto watercolor paper.  I repeated it a second time and moved it down just a bit.

After I had my stamped images on it was time to watercolor...and boy do I need to work on it! lol  Since I want to stick with all FSJ product when I'm creating I decided to buy a covered palette to store my watercolors in.  I got all of these colors with some of my Journey Color Splash Watercolor Pencils.  I used to put it on a block and always wiped it away.  I didn't want to be wasteful so I took the time to put my favorite colors into the palette.  I think I did this before Christmas and hadn't touched them since.  Since then the water had evaporated and left me with dry colors to pull out whenever I need them!  Glad I got to try my hand at it again.  I REALLY need to practice more now that my busy January is over...whew!
