Free Friday-watercolored background!

I'm on a watercoloring "kick" this week! The watercoloring I've done for you today is a quick and easy background to stamp on:

If you missed my post from yesterday, I showed you how to watercolor with Ink Pads. I am again using Ink Pads for today's card but using an Aqua Painter which adds more water to the inks:

It's really quite simple.....use Watercolor Paper, dip your Aqua Painter in some ink and swipe across the paper a few times, add another color and repeat. Add as many layers of color as you wish. I used 3 on my sample. Once dry, stamp over the watercolored background!

Card Supplies:
  • Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Watercolor Paper
  • DSP: Comfort Cafe
  • Inks: Island Indigo, Wild Wasabi, Pool Party
  • Accessories: Seam Binding Ribbon, Brads
  • Stamps: Just Believe
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies, Sponge Dauber, Sticky Strip, Aqua Painter
