Watercolor background/Cyber MondayDecember 01, 2014
Hello! Today I have a card with a water colored background. There is a new challenge on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and this month is all about Watercolor.
Have you ever had a card you loved. I mean really, really loved and then botched the Title? Yep, that is this card. I love how the background came out on this one. Mind you, I made at least 4 and not one came out nearly as pretty as this one. Most were a total disaster with blue and dark green every where...I just couldn't get the purple to show.
See, I started out by putting my Distress inks on a large acrylic block. The Tumbled Glass and The shaded Lilac were so over powered by the Evergreen Bough, but I love the combination. So I resorted to using my re-inkers for the Tumbled Glass and Shaded Lilac. The colors were most definitely bolder! Too bold in fact. I had to use less re-inker and more water for the softness I was going for.
Enter the FOURTH try and it finally gave me what I wanted. YAY!!!
