First of all I don't have any fancy cardstock just plain cheap 160gsm so I made the decision to use Derwent Inktense pencils and an ordinary paintbrush with minimum amount of water.
The next step was to use the Simon Says Stamps Leaves Stencil where I wanted it to lay and then using a green pencil just coloured the stems and the bottom of leaves where it joins the stem. Still with the stencil on the card I used the paintbrush to spread the colour throughout the leaves. The water did slip underneath the stencil a bit and to begin with I wasn't sure I liked the finished result. But it actual look like watercolour.
The  Roses and other leaves from Best Mom again Simon Says Stamp were stamp with an dye inkpad on a separate piece of card cos I knew I wanted to cut them out. But this time I decided to pull the colour from the inked edges.
The sentiment was made up with a couple of Simon Says Stamp sets Essential Greetings and Happy set.


 So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
