This lovely water color started as a fun project with my daughter-in-love. We sat down together with a bunch of blue ink and totally different ideas. I can’t wait to see what her card ends up looking like. I wanted to create dimension in a single layer water color. I love how it turned out.
I started with a wet brush and paper. I put different colors in all four corners and the lightest blue in the center. The wet ink blooms did a lot of blending, but I moved the paper around to control the rest. My patience runs thin often, which ends up in me drying my projects along the way to speed them up. This time was different. I only dried the paper enough to apply some stamped images here and there. Then, I spritzed the entire piece to soften the images and allow more blending to happen.
After a few hours I came back to see how it ended up. Just like this. I even controlled myself and didn’t add anything else. No more color, or blending or water droplets. It was accented with copper foil paper and copper metallic thread. What a great all occasion card to have on hand.
Have a creative day!
