This amazing sunflower image is from the French Country stamp set.  I stamped it onto white watercolor paper.  I wanted to start watercoloring it straight away, but I didn’t leave enough time and the black ink started to just make everything gray.  I decided to embrace it, and thus “Dirty Watercoloring” was born in my mind!
Here’s how to get this effect: after creating the wash of gray over the entire image, wait for the image to dry, then add color over the top.  SUPER easy peasy, but so cool looking!  I think it looks a lot like a recolored black and white photo, don’t you?  I love how the gray created an automatic shadow for the image, too!

 The sentiment was stamped over the image and comes from the Big Wonderful stamp set.  I like how easy it is to make a customized sentiment with this set! I accented it with some faux stitching and a few rhinestones.

 Lastly, I layered my focal panel onto a card base that had been gussied up with patterned paper, cheesecloth, and netting.  I love the texture it added!  I hope you do, too!  Please leave me a comment below with your thoughts. 🙂
