Stamp your foreground choices on to masking sheet and carefully fussy cut the images using scissors.
Stamp your foreground stamps on to your watercolour card. Use a stamping platform to keep everything aligned.
Cover your stamped images with the masking sheet, taking time to make sure the images are covered. Take your background stamp and stamp this on to your card panel.
Take your background stamp and stamp this on to your card panel.
Remove the masking sheet and check your layout.
Begin water colouring your image. Squish a little ink on to a glass mat and spritz with water. Start with light washes over the whole image before starting to pick out darker areas.
Add more detail by including more darker areas, dry off your card panel between layers. Remember colours in the foreground tend to be more intense.
Once dry, mat and layer your card panel and mount it to your card blank using foam.
