Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - "W" is for Watercolor

Happy Day everyone and can you believe that we are just days away from Halloween???  Every single person I have talked to this month has said the same thing... "WHERE did this year go?!"  But ooops, I digress....

Today, over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers we have a Watercolor challenge and did I ever have fun with this one!!
I spent all day playing with my Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders (which are similar to Brushos or Ken Oliver's Color Bursts). I used mixed media paper with a vellum finish and lots of water
wetting the paper before sprinkling on the powder and spraying more water on the paper after adding the powder, watching everything swirl and blend.

I used my trusty heat gun to dry right away the effects I wanted to keep
but allowed others to mix and swirl and soften as they dried on their own.  These are just a few of the amazing backgrounds I created... 

And then for something slightly different I stamped and heat embossed in white enamel overtop of some of the brightest pieces to create this lovely lacey look...
I used these backgrounds as backdrops for just a few of my favorite Unity Stamps' "Lovely Ladies" and created all these cards...
and since I could not choose just one I have decided to share them all...
Unity Stamp: Blooming Rebecca Girl 
Angela Blom/Unity Stamp: Adaline Girl
Angela Blom/Unity Stamp: Mila Girl
Angela Blom/Unity Stamp: Blooming Rebecca Girl
Phyllis Harris/Unity Stamp: Face the Sunshine"
Do pop on over to the Snarky Stampers' Blog to see what the Sisterhood has created for this challenge and we would love if shared your watercolored-creation with us.  You have until Friday, November 11th to link up and we always pick a Queen of Snark and her Princesses!

And "Happy Halloween Everyone!!"
