A new take on my usual favorite white-on-white with some watercoloring thrown in for fun. LOL. The Berry Blessings and Sweet Strawberry Bundles bring this simple card together. I first stamped the images with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, so it wouldn’t run when I started watercoloring. Next I pressed an acrylic block onto my ink pads to lift off some color. I lifted Rich Razzleberry on one half and Blackberry Bliss on the other half of the block and then I was able to add water from my Water Painter and mix them a bit on the block or pull from one side or the other if I wanted my berry to be darker or lighter. At first I was feeling like I needed to stay in the lines, but then I let loose a bit and had fun with it.
