I got brave and used regular ol' Very Vanilla card stock to watercolor with a blender pen and ink. To do this technique, squeeze the lid of the ink pad against the ink. It creates a small palette of ink in which to dip/swipe the blender pen.
Since I used card stock, I had to work FAST and not drag the pen over and over in the same spot. I'm a newbie but this worked okay for me because the stamp covered most of my blemishes!
I finished it off by gently misting the card with Garden Green Stampin' Write Marker and the Color Spritzer (#107066). Love the distressed look the spritzer adds to projects!

I did use Water Color Paper (#122959) for this card. I stamped with Jet Black StazOn first, then I took my time and enjoyed blending -- using the same technique above. (I cheated by adding a bit of Early Espresso to the tires as well.) Oh, it's like a grown-up version of a coloring book. Love it! I finished it off by spritzing just the tractor layer with Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker and the Color Spritzer.
