Watercolor Cacti Cards

A couple of weekends ago, while Greg and Evelyn were in Montana for the weekend, I took Parker with me to check out made. a local market for the first time.

We poked around for a bit, but a squirmy toddler who is too big for a stroller and also too big to be constantly held makes for a distracted shopping experience. In any case, I found a few goodies:

I hadn't expected to come across a stamp set while at the market, and so I looked forward to making some cards with it, especially since those cacti were ripe for watercoloring!

I used regular cardstock for the watercoloring instead of actual watercolor paper, so that may have contributed to some bleeding when the cardstock got really saturated with water. I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used the Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36-Color Set watercolors.
