back to reality!

After a week of kid free bliss enjoying the ocean waves, beautiful sunsets and margaritas, I'm back trying to get into the swing of things!!!

When I had a spare moment I finally got to finish watching the rest of the online watercolour for card makers videos! This card is one from the bonus day. I loved the technique and have tried a few different combos with the limited distress inks I have!!

For the background of this card I scored some random lines to give a plaid kind of look (loved that idea from the video) then I put down a few colours of distress ink on my mat spritzed it with water and placed the water colour paper on it moving it from side to side a little to get the colour everywhere. I didn't do any touch ups on it. just let it dried, stared at it for al one while not liking it, came back to it today and put this creation together! 

Hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by!!

  1. Watercoloring is my favorite technique to work with. You did a great job with your watercolor background. Job well done.
