Joy Clair, February Blog Hop Wild & Free

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here today taking part in the Joy Clair February Blog Hop. We have five great sets this month, and let me tell you, I want to go camping now :)
Aren't they all so sweet. My project for this hop is the one in the Center titled "Wild & Free". Our technique theme for this month is watercolor so I used that as my process.

Wild & Free
Be Brave
Happy Camper

Prayer Warrior

                       I began with a piece of watercolor card stock and the stamp set. I first made some masks of the images so I could make multiple impressions without them getting entangled. Using Watering Can Grey Archival ink I stamped out the canoe and first set of mountains, masked them then stamped the next set of mountains and the raccoon. With the second set of mountains still masked I stamped the beaver up in the sky. Not sure about you, but my kids and I always loved looking at the clouds and finding animal shapes, so I put that memory to use on this project. 
I then used my Ganzi Tambi watercolors to paint the lake, the clouds, and the mountainside. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color the raccoon and canoe. 

I hope you have enjoyed my project today, please be sure to leave a comment and hop over to the rest of the team's blogs and check out their projects as well. Donna's Blog is up next... the list is below.
