Try Something New with Daubers


Not long ago I saw a video of a card making technique where a dauber is used to color an image. It was intriguing, since I'd never tried this before. I decided to give it a try.



As you can see in this closeup picture,
the "coloring" is not very exact/precise, 
but instead it has an artsy feel to it.
I'm okay with that for a floral image like this one.





To match the artsy look of the daubered image, 
I chose an artsy feeling designer paper, too.




Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
