Hi everyone. I'm really loving orange and purple colour combo right now. :) I used it on THIS CARD I posted a little while ago. :)
For today's card I used the "Splash Watercolouring" technique to create my background. Click HERE to see my video tutorial on this fun and easy way to create a watercoloured background.
The flower stem is smooshed into diluted dark purple distress ink, and more was used to splatter a little for the background. Sometimes distress inks don't stamp well ... but with using my Misti and stamping the sentiment twice, I was able to get a clean, crisp impression.
This is a reminder about the new CAS Watercolour card challenge that just launched at the beginning of October ...
There's only a couple more days to play along October's challenge if you haven't already. The challenge is open until Oct. 24th at midnight (PDT).
Create a CAS (CLEAN and SIMPLE) Watercoloured card following October's challenge - Autumn, and then link up on the challenge blog. Come join the fun! :)
I used snippets of watercolour paper for my splash panel and for the die-cut flowers. I'm heading over to join the fun at the Snippets Playground.
Thanks for stopping by.
