Mother's Day

This is the swap I made for our April's "Cool and the Gang" challenge using a watercolor technique. Instead of using the Aqua Painter to apply the color, I used the watercolor crayons and colored directly onto the stamp itself, misted with water, and stamped onto the paper. Lots of fun! Keep an eye out "Coolie's" I'll be using this technique again! :) Thanks to Tonya Treat for the idea!
