Watercolour Wonders

Pin It
Watercolouring is one of my favourite techniques.  Each card you make is completely unique & sometimes what looks like a disaster can turn into a masterpiece (that is how the poppy card came about!)
For this card I started by inking the Pleasant Poppies stamp with Stampin' Write Markers & stamped the image on Watercolour Paper.  Next I sprayed the paper with water, let it run & then left it to dry.  I finished it with a Baja Breeze wash.  I was planning on mounting this on Baja Breeze CS but it stood out better on the Real Red with a black background, then I thought "oh, Caterbury colours" then I thought "Hang on, poppies, red, ANZAC Day!"
This card uses exactly the same method but I changed the colours to Wisteria Wonder & Perfect Plum & used the Serene Silhouettes stamp set. I have also embossed the contrasting CS with the Lacy Brocade embossing folder on both cards.
