Tried my Hand at Liquid Color

On the background cardstock!  What do you think?  

To make this background I used a few drops of different 3 shades of Blue liquid colors from FSJ on a large clear block.  Then I spritzed with water and then put the card stock on top to soak up the color. then you let it dry!  You can do this with both regular whip cream card stock and water color paper.  

Stamps: Must have Sentiments
Paper: Whip cream, Black
Ink: Black
Accessories: Hats off die, Circle dies, Liquid color, fashion Silver, Twine
