Make it Monday, #116, Adding Texture to Stamps, No. 2

For this card, I used Watercolor Wonder, and swiped the ink pad across the stamp, rather than tap the ink on. I really like the texture this added. I hope you can see the texture in the central image, in Aqua Mist ink, but in real life, all of the images have this texture. It makes the swipes look more "painted", rather than stamped. (You may have to click on the picture to enlarge it.) The sentiment is from Birthday Sentiments.
All materials are from PTI. Thanks for looking!
