Gel Pens and Watercolor Crayons

I am still busy with tons of projects - class samples, graduation cards,button fairies, and ATC's for my ongoing "Elements" swap. I recently completed one of the three elements to which I have committed. The background was created using a stencil that I colored with Glaze gel pens. After the ink dried, I colored with watercolor crayons, blending with a damp towel. The Glaze marks create a resist with the watercolor. I have been enjoying playing around with this combination.
NOTE: This is not meant to be insensitive to those taking lithium or those with psychological issues. I really just wanted to use these 2 stamps together for Lithium.
