ODBDSLC284 Anything Goes with ODBD stamps

This month's challenge at ODBD is a super easy one - anything with ODBD stamps!  And there are so much to choose from so I hope you can play along.

I haven't done no-line watercoloring in a while and I thought the new Tulip stamp would be perfect for this technique.  And I love the result!

I first sponged a background using distress inks - Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, and Squeezed Lemonade.  The Circle Scalloped Rectangles was a great background die - gave interest and let the colors peep through.  I then stamped the tulip on watercolor paper using Zig Clean Color Brushes and then went back and painted additional color on them.  I also brushed the tulip with a clear glitter Wink of Stella brush which moved the colors a little bit more than I intended but it still came out well.   The tulip was then cut with the coordinating Tulip die cut - I'm not a fan of fussy cutting! :)

I then added a script Thanks die cut using the same distress inks only more saturated.
