WATERCOLOUR SILHOUETTES

A dear friend of mine is turning 80 this week (waving at YOU, Shirley!) and a special birthday requires a special card.  I left my sponges in their box and pulled out my Aqua Painter instead.  I love the bold, bright watercolour wash effect on this card. 

I simply dipped my Aqua Painter into various re-inkers and let loose on the page, which of course, is water colour paper.

I hope you had a wonderful day Shirley xox

  2. That is REALLY beautiful, Paula. Gorgeous colour choices, and the depth of colour is beautiful ... I've never watercoloured with reinkers, so must try that. :)

  4. Paula,
    You simply amaze me with your talent. I love this card and I am going to try it today. I wish I could join your clubs and classes. I just love your work. I do not think you have made anything that I don't love.

    Thanks for asking!

  13. Love your card and would love to try this. Could you tell me how you got the stamped images to be white? Did you do the water color around the stamped part? Very new to all this so any help would be appreciated.
