Watercolored Berries {Papertrey Ink}

Today on the Papertrey Ink blog, the anniversary challenge is to create a project using some sort of watercolor technique.  I haven't tried this technique before, but I will definately being doing it again!  So much fun!!
I used the Strawberry Patch Stamp set.  I embossed it with clear embossing powder on water color paper then I dabbed my ink pads in each color I wanted to use on a piece of acetate.  Using a water brush and the ink, I filled in each space, going back and adding more color where I wanted more shadow.
The sentiment is from Beautiful Butterflies.  I know for next time to stamp the sentiment first and then emboss the image over it if there is overlap... you can see how my sentiment was resisted by the embossing because I did that last.
I can't wait to try this technique again!!
