calendar art & a new technique

Hi friends.  I have more calendar art for you today.
And on this next one, I tried a new technique called no line watercolor.

You stamp in a light color ink and then watercolor the image starting with light colors and adding darker for shading.  You have to let the colors dry in between.  I really liked this technique.  Since I don't have any artist quality watercolors, I used my Inktense pencils with a waterbrush, taking the color directly from the pencil rather than coloring with the pencil and then adding the water.  You could also color a patch on paper and pick it up with your brush. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

The flower and the hedgehog are my favorites. I love the colors and your technique too!
