These cards were inspired by one of my ladies asking about colouring and blending colours on stamped images, then showing her water colouring backgrounds. It's not something I do very often so thought it was time to play with this method. I was happy with the results, so must do this more often.
For the top card, I used Shimmery White card (#121717) and the bottom card I used Watercolour Paper (#122959) to do the watercolouring. Both these types of cardstock are ideal when watercolouring. I used an Aqua Painter (#103954) to apply the ink to the card. Once you are happy with the colouring of the background, ensure it is dry before stamping. I dried it using the Heat Tool (#129056). The ink used was Pacific Point (#126951) for the top card and Bermuda Bay (#131171) for the other. The stamp set used is Big On Birthdays (#p142877) for the sentiment and flowers. I used Pacific Point card (#116202) with the Shimmery White card, and Very Vanilla (#106550) and Bermuda Bay (#131286) were used with the Watercolour Paper.
