Watercolour Splash Daisies
Hi everyone. Quick post today. I wasn't planning on being in the studio today. I had scheduled a day of cleaning the house -- boring! :) But when I saw THIS BEAUTIFUL CARD from OH Babs, I had to pull out my same daisy stamp. Thanks for the inspiration Babs! :)
I used a Splash Watercolour background (done in antique linen and brushed corduroy distress inks) ... this time using mixed media paper. Click HERE to see my video tutorial on this easy and fun watercolour background technique. :) It worked great with the mixed media paper, just need to use a LOT less water then when using watercolour paper. :)
Then I used watercolour spritz technique to stamp my daisies. I inked up the daisy stamp with my distress inks, lightly sprayed with water and then stamped over top of my dried, splash watercolour background. Stamped the sentiment and voila, card was done.
Hope you are all having a great weekend!
