Watercolor paper


Watercolor paper always adds so much texture to a project. For this card, I used the top note die cut and watercolor paper. I dampened the paper before stamping the flowers. The stamp was inked with markers in four different colors before stamping. I then used black craft for the detail stamp and clear embossed that before blending the colors with a dampened paint brush. I used itty bitty backgrounds for the splatters and then a damp sponge and bravo burgundy ink to soften the edges. The black strip behind the main panel really makes it pop and then I added just a touch of the gingham ribbon. How do you like this?
