When I bought the owl stamp on Salt Spring Island, I also picked up a water bird image. It's not quite as detailed as the owl, but there's always the need to create a watery ground for the image, and that's intimidating.
Until I thought of Watercolor Wonders from Papertrey.
Put the two together, and this is what you get.
The Watercolor Wonders long stamp is inked with Soft Pool ink from Hero Arts and spritzed with water. Once the water was stamped, I added the bird (using a stamp positioner since it's wood mounted!), then the sentiment, then cut out the panel.
Note that the bird's beak points at the sentiment. That's on purpose.
As far as you know.
The stamped panel needed a little something, so I added a very thin black mat. I love how easy this was and how clean and fresh it looks.
