A Walk in the Park

I found a card online that I really liked so I made my own version. Sorry, I can't remember whose lovely card was the inspiration for this one! They are pretty similar. I used a different stamp set and a different piece of Designer Series Paper. The technique is watercoloring with markers. I added color to the areas that are the darkest and then with my aqua-painter, I spread the color throughout the image. I used this for a workshop card and the ladies loved this idea!

What a fun technique! Neat color combo too--I don't do a lot of earthy combos, but you've made me want to try this one!
