This week's challenge at Just Us Girls is to create a water color background. Of course I never read the directions. i thought we were suppose to just use any watercolor technique. So, I spent last Saturday making these really cool watercolored flower cards. Then I noticed today the challenge was for a background! There I was scrambling to remake my challenge card.
The good news is I used the same technique for today's card that I had on my other cards. I took the background flower dot pattern from Hero Arts and sprayed it with water and scribbled it with watercolor crayons in blues and greens. I spritzed it lightly again and stamped it onto watercolor paper.
I used the same technique with the flowers from Simon Says Stamp. the saying is from My Favorite Things.
Check out this tutorial to see how I made this card.
I will post my other cards soon showcasing this same cool technique. Please join us in this great technique challenge at Just Us Girls!
