and can not stand to try my new Watercolor Masking Fluid, I have read at Sandie Blog, London Days. and I search in Google and decided to buy this liquid. I stamped and masked the image from Create a Smile:

Using this thin bamboo I try to add the watercolor masking fluid to mimic the raindrops (be careful its stink and if you sensitive with something so stink this liquid is really stink :) )

Colored with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor set:

Then using my nailfinger I clean the liquid on that paper. Here is the card finished, please don´t laugh that the water rain drop looks so BIG not so smooth like on the Photo Inspiration, it is FAR FROM PERFECT :), I am newbie using this watercolor masking fluid :) (grinz)
