A watercolored background was the perfect technique to make the large ampersand frame shine!
I love making watercolored backgrounds like this. To make this piece I brushed water over a piece of Distress Watercolor paper with a clean brush. Then I dropped shades of blue, green and purple paint onto the paper. I heat set it, then went back in with more water just to move the color a bit more, then heat it again. The paper was pretty warped so I placed it under a few heavy books while I worked on the rest of my card. Play with this technique and see how many different looks you can get!
My next card uses the Hello, Awesome stamp set, Awesome Word die and Anytime Tags 2.
I just love this Awesome die!!! It HAD to be the focal point.
I combined all of these fun new products with the previously released Spring Flowers die set.
Time to keep hopping along now. Next up is Sarah Jay, so head over to her blog because you know she'll have something AMAZING to show you. Make sure to leave comments along the way too, because Laura is giving away 3 - $15 Store Credits!
