Watercoloring with Hero Arts

Hey fellow crafters,

How are we doing this fine day?

I am here to bring you a great One Layer-esque Card. All stamps are from Hero Arts. I like the sliver of blue showing on the outside of the card it's just enough to tie back into bird.  

I used all Distress Inks to stamp the layered images and the frame. Then I would take a water-brush and soften out each layer to give it a more watercolored feel. This card could be made 15 minutes or less. Just use a heating tool in between the layers. I decided to let each layer air dry.

I am really pleased by how it turned out. :)
