Papertrey Ink 6th Anniversary ~Watercolor technique

I thought I would try and copy Dawns technique. I wanted to keep it simple because I have tried this before and..... not great results. Here is Dawns card:


Hers is so pretty. Here is mine:

Again I was keeping mine simple with a simple stamp. I used Willow. I stamped it on Watercolor paper. I initially used Spring Moss ink. My Spring Moss is getting un-usable. It is so dry. I wet it and then decided to re-stamp with Simply Chartreuse. It looked much better and actually spread the ink out more, so that was a good decision. The brown trunk really won't spread. I was afraid to add more water. I thought the paper would disintegrate so I left it as is. The watercolor paper is mounted on top of Royal Velvet card stock. A sentiment from Willow is stamped at the bottom, you can barely see it.
Not too bad for my first attempt.
