I think that I have fallen in love with distress inks and markers watercoloring. Using the aqua brush and watercolor paper makes it so easy by stamping the images onto watercolor paper and moving and blending the colors with the aqua brush. I lightly outlined the square stamp with vintage photo and moved the color inward with the aqua brush. I did not stamp off first to soften because I like the vibrant colors.
I've used florals from three Verve sets; leaves and sentiment from VSA-10-018 "Great Friend" Set of 12, vase, greenery and small flower from -W-08-022 "Asian Flair" set of 13, and greenery, purple flowers and small flower from VS-09-015 "Because of You" set of 16. The butterfly was an extra from another project.
