Technique Time Tuesday ~ Water Stamping!!!

Hope you all enjoyed a fabulous Easter weekend with family and friends. We have family in town visiting from the East & West coast and we are having a blast! That being said my craft space has been turned into a guest room/office at the moment and of course I am having fun spending time with my family {rather than crafting...} BUT don't worry I do have a few things on the go and here is one!

This is my second month on the Crew at Technique Time Tuesday. Katy has a FABULOUS technique for us this month Water Stamping. My goodness I have a feeling this is going to become a regular technique for me and cannot wait to share it with my Stampers Club later this month!!! We would love for you to pop on over and show us what you can do with this super fun technique :)

I am entering this card in the sketch challenge over at Create with Connie & Mary, as well as The Paper Players tic tac toe challenge {I went with the Pearls, A Tag & Ribbon combo}! I used last week's colour challenge at ColourQ because I just LOVED the combo!
