Today’s Card was totally inspired, and cased from This One by Jessica Witty.  I love the whole concept of mixing colors right on the card, in big wet pools (something I like to play with anyway lol).  It is such a simple and lovely technique, that I decided to feature the technique in Paper Crafters Library.  The key to success is simple.  A good brush that holds plenty of water, and being very generous with the water.  The other thing which you want to ensure, is that you paint does not dry out when adding one color beside the next, or you will end up with water blooms.  So make sure you work quickly!  For the greeting, I just could not find the right one among all my stamps.  With such a bold abstract design, you need something that does not get lost.  So I turned to my trusty Silhouette to cut me a greeting which would work perfectly.  Hope you Enjoy,

Supplies:

  • Paper:  Basic Black CS, Watercolor paper, white copy paper (1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ for paper airplane)
