Loose watercolor background with Rowena

Hi friends!! It’s Rowena here I’m back with a simple card using ‘ You are Awesome‘ and ‘Spread Your Wings‘ stamps.

For my card today, I wanted to create a card using my favorite technique…a loose blended watercolor background!! It’s one of my go-to technique when I want to create that watercolor look.

Let’s get started shall we!!! 😊

I wanted to add interest onto my card panel and the ‘You are Awesome‘ is the perfect stamp for the job! This is such a awesome stamp(pun intended 😉) for making your own unique background or using it as a focal point on your projects.

To create my background, I white heat embossed the scribbly circles focusing mostly on top of my panel.

I did a bit of ink blending using mustard seed distress ink. I then lightly sprayed the panel with clean water and with the help of a waterbrush moved the colors even more to achive that loose watercolor look. I added a bit of wild honey distress ink just to brighten the yellows more. Sprinkled yellows and purple to add more interest to the card.

Next I simply colored the cute little butterflies from ‘Spread your Wings‘ stamp with watercolor. I kept the colors simple and fun. I added a bit of shimmer and foam tape to give the butterflies a bit of dimension. I added the sentiment from the same set to complete the card.

Hope you all like today’s post!!! Till next time and happy crafting everyone😘

Hugs,
Rowena
