Rainbow World with Neat and Tangled

Hi everyone!  I have another Neat and Tangled card to share with you today.  This one uses the Origami Map stamp designed by my good friend, Miriam Prantner :)  I just got some watercolor powders (Color Burst) and I thought this was the perfect stamp to use it with!  


The powders can be used directly on wet paper, but to get this look, I laid down a layer of water onto a large acrylic block (the card size one).  Then I sprayed the powders onto the block.  After the colors blended a bit (no intervention needed), I laid the paper onto the block.  It's so much fun and next time I'll try to video it.  BTW, I stamped the map after I made the colored background.  And I used Versafine ink to stamp (as a general rule, I use Versafine with water based color media like Distress Inks and watercolors).  


Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful weekend!  And thanks to Miriam and Danielle at Neat and Tangled!!!

Much love,
jj
