    This is beautiful! I have not used watercolors on a card and now I am inspired to try it. What kind of ink do you stamp with before painting?

    I first saw this amazing artist’s work on the OCC that I’m taking and from there I visited her blog. She well deserves to win the title of web site wonder for she truly is! I look forward to seeing more from this talented lady!

    Congratulations. Fascinating to see such an individual style & actually observe it in progress. The technique is not one I’ve seen before & I found Sanketi’s blog full of interesting information.
