My Hero - Debby Hughes!

Imagine my surprise with this morning's Watercolor Class!!  I never peek to see who will be the teachers for the day =] 

Debby is an exceptional teacher... doesn't hurt that I get to listen to her wonderful accent - I know, Debby I have the accent!  I do hope we'll see her again, really soon.

I really had to dig for a background stamp.  I had better luck using them with this watercolor technique, than regular stamping. Could be the Distress Inks I used.  Here are my first attempts:
 
With an Hero Arts alphabet background stamp - Spiced Marmalade ink
Using an Hero Arts Hounds-tooth background stamp
 
Turns out, my first try was a charm [orange on right].  Here is what I created with it:


Aga and Jennifer are awesome, too!!  Jennifer, I didn't have masking fluid, so I'll try that one later =]
Coats & Clark silver thread. Fab sentiments from Winnie & Walter!
