Watercoloring Rocks: MFT Rawr-Some

I was surprised to get a little package from MFT recently (thank you!) – and while it took me a bit to get something done, I’m hoping you’ll like what I have to share!

Watercoloring Rocks

Making scenes is my thing – and making rocks is a pretty easy way to create a scene on your cards. Lots of critter stamps would work with the idea, but the little Rawr-some dinosaurs were perfect for it! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I’m using Daniel Smith Watercolors on this card – but you can use all kinds to achieve this effect. The paper has more of an effect in moving the color over the rough surface than the brand of paint. I also like Gansai Tambi, and the Koi are especially great for travel.

And last but not least, I’ve always felt bad for dinos with tiny arms. So I’m glad they finally have the perfect sentiment!
