Thinking In Color

I'm still working my way through my Valentines.  My daughter is a fan of my more colorful cards.  She is also personally getting interested in watercolor and has done some very pretty things.

When I got this stamp I could see that it would be a perfect showcase for some color.  One thing I found out about the Arches Hot Press watercolor paper is that it doesn't bleach out.  Normally when I use Ranger Distress Watercolor Paper I can beach out color in unwanted places like the face when I stamp over colors.  I had to use some PaperArtsy Fresco paint to cover the watercolor.  I have to double check and make sure that my bleach hasn't lost it's potency before I know for sure.
