Watercolor for Card Makers #2

I think this technique is soooooo cool! I stamped the Taylor Expressions Oops A Daisy, hand drew the stems and covered the daisies and stems with rubber cement and let it dry! Side note: Did you know you need to show and ID to buy rubber cement? I didn't! I guess you have to be 18 to buy it in Iowa. At twice that age and then some, it made me laugh! Anyway, once the glue was dry, I covered the background with watercolors (set from Hobby Lobby). I really don't like the hard lines that are around the edge of my background, I need some more practice with that. Once the background was dry, I rubbed off all the rubber cement. FYI--I did find that just using my fingers is better than an eraser. The eraser can rub off your watercolor if you go out of the lines. Thanks for stopping by!
