Virginia's View Challenge #1 - Rev It Up

Hi Friends,
There's a new Challenge in town, called Virginia's View.  Virginia Lu's first challenge is challenging us to do some Water Colouring.  I used Markers on a Stamping Block to do my Water Colouring for the background and inside the card. The technique is a very simple one where you colour the block with your markers and then spritz it quite liberally and place it on your card until all the moisture is soaked up.  I then stamped with Stazon Black. I also stamped a flat white brad with the inside part of the wheel.

Thanks to Dr. John this card was awarded a Top 10 Favourite at Virginia's View Challenge
