Welcome to another Stampin' Down Under mini Blog Hop, we are happy you are here! Alisa and I both love to colour in all mediums, and this month we are featuring watercolour backgrounds.
I went with the Pigment Sprinkles to create my background. To create my card, I first taped down watercolour paper to a clipboard. This was to help keep it from warping too much as I added a ton of water to get the movement in the pigments you see above. I mopped up any dark water logged edges with a paper towel and then I left it to dry overnight. That's it!
Once dry, I removed the tape and cut my card down to leave just a fine, clear border around the background. The way the colour moved and dried reminded me of a reflection, so that is exactly what I created using the Waterfront stamp set. I then ran my Aqua Painter over some of the ink to create a watery look in the "water". To finish my card, I hand drew a sun using Wink of Stella which gives it a lovely sheen!
