Great ideas, rscowtown! Hope you can find samples and will post them.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the one-stroke painted items. Would you do some for our next ATC Technique swap?

I sell the ultra fine spray mist bottles and have mixed a bit of acrylic paint into water (not sure of the ratio but its not much paint) and spritzed on stuff, but not sure where samples would be. I can look c and if I cant find any I'll have to just make some more samples. I think I also did that with fabric paint, I am a certified One Stroke Painter (donna dewberry stuff) and sprayed either a tshirt or a tote bag then painted on it.

I think the trick here is to realize that we are only limited by our imaginations. The materials are flexible and we can bend them. This morning on TV there was a 4 year old girl from Australia who began painting at 9 months. Her works now sell at as much as 20 thousand dollars and the art critics think she is wonderful.

My grandson graduates high school next weekend. We are very proud of him too. So many kids today quit and drop out. They are all the future of our country.

I'll see if I can find some of the ones I haven't used yet so ya'll can see the differences. btw, this and another similar card are in my gallery:
I like the look you achieved Stacy, the color choices are wonderful.
I've tried this before with regular ink pad.. have to give this a try w/ the distress ones, thx

Other good tools to have in your posession is a piece of a natural sea sponge. It is excellent for dampening a watercolor paper as much or as little as you need if you do not spritz with a mister. Block watercolor paper is great as it is glued flat except for a tiny area where a bone folder will remove it later on. This way the paper stays flat and won't curl. Or low tack masking tape to tape the edges to a board before you start. It also will leave a nice white edge.
Try not to be in a hurry to heatgun paper dry...toss some rock salt on it and let the salt work magic! Very unique texture when you are finished!
A generous glass of water to clean a brush fast if great too! Lay down some deep watercolor paint and follow with a clean but damp brush below it to pull the deep color down by floating it a little. Remember to leave white in places for freshness or try painting the image upside down and don't think too much about it and let it go. You will find it really is fun and frees you up to get loose results! Just some hints from memories of watercolor in plen-air settings years ago!

Spidey. Thanks for the reminders. Sometimes our brains forget the basics.

Crayon Resist (Cross-Post)
I am including it here because Watercolors are used.

Stamp your image with archival ink.

Use a white crayon to color areas you want to remain uncolored (here I colored the parts of the crane).

Brush Watercolors over stamped/crayoned image.

If necessary, gently wipe off any ink/watercolor from the crayoned surface.

Another way to get the Resist effect: instead of using the crayon, cover the area you want to keep unchanged with Rubber Cement, add watercolor wash, then rub off the Rubber Cement.

This is a cross reference.
The Tutorial for the Salt Background along with some very interesting discussion and experimentation is found here:

http://www.rubberstampchat.net/showthread.php?t=4303

Here is a sample of the Salt Background done with reinkers, but, as Spidey suggests, you can use watercolors too.
