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.

A different rock formation – a rock wall behind the dino, and a tree stamped behind the rocks….

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!
