Wet watercolor paper technique


I have tried this technique in the past, and I ended up with what I thought of as...sloppy results. Today I thought I would give it another shot and it turned out much better. To do the technique...you just mist some water on watercolor paper and then stamp on it with a solid stamp image. My best friend's grandma died today, so I made this to send to her. supplies: cardstock- Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron, True Thyme, watercolor paper; ink- Always Artichoke, Baroque Burgundy, So saffron; stamps- Rhonna Farrer clear flourish stamp, So very, Watercolor gardens; accessories- brads, ticket punch.

Question- Does anyone else have trouble trying to leave comments on some blogs? Ever since I registered on Blogger there are some blogs that keep "refreshing" or something. It is so frustrating because I will comment and then *poof* it disappears. If anyone knows a fix...let me know...it would really help me out!
