It was so fun as we tested on cardstock as well as copy paper before taking it to my tip-in cardstock page which I had previously stamped with the Polkadoodles "Best of Days" Stamp (#PD7147) using Rangers Archival Black Ink stamp pad. For all of this play, I used the Jerry Q Watercolour set of 24, which you will find linked on my Products I Prefer page tab just above this post. I found that several phrases from Tim Holtz "Small Talk" stickers worked nicely in conjunction with the scripture to finish off my tip-in page. To finish it off, I added Washi Tape to attach it to the Bible Page and then a few more strips at the bottom for added fun.
The old, well-worn gelli plate, that Norma had previously sent, worked best for holding the watercolour straight from the brush. The newer gelli-plate resisted and beaded up the watercolour, but the trick I'd learned, to apply common dishsoap on the plate first before applying the watercolour, worked very well!
