Serendipity - Watercolors!

Like to watercolor?  If you do it is a great week to participate in the Serendipity Stamps Challenge!  Just use any Serendipity image and watercolor it for your project.  I embossed my image with Versafine and clear embossing powder.

I watercolored my image with Tim Holtz's Distress Markers.  He has GREAT fall colors!  For watercoloring I like to use hot press watercolor paper.  It has a much smoother surface for stamping than cold press.  It is hard (and expensive) to find in pads so I buy big sheets of it and cut it up.

Finished size is 6 3/2 x 4 3/4.
