For these two cards I stamped both images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and colored my images with Distress Oxide inks using an H2O brush dipped directly onto the ink pad, like a paint brush. I'm still learning myself how to watercolor cards that everyone makes look so easy. It's not easy, it does take LOTS of practice.
I started by brushing on some water first then adding some color to the water and just let it blend and spread and let it dry. And repeated this several times. This way you get a layered look with some shading and depth. I do recommend using watercolor paper, but by using less water I didn't get much rippling. And whats unique about these, is when the oxides get wet they dry with a soft chalky like finish, but it's totally dry. It's really cool. Then I die cut my images out.
