Watercoloring with Markers

I made this cute card for Cindy using the Bitty Birthday stamp set. I stamped the cake on watercolor paper with Black Staz On. Then I went around the outlines of the images with SU markers and then blended the colors with the Aquapainter. It's a pretty easy watercoloring method and gives you a lot of control over the placement and intensity of the colors. Plus, I love that the colors all match the SU papers.
