Online Card Classes: Watercolouring Day One
Today was the first of the new Online Card Class: Watercolouring for Card Makers. The focus is on backgrounds. I was particularly intrigued by a technique demonstrated by Laura Bassen. Essentially she inked up an acrylic block with distress ink, spritzed it with water and pressed it onto watercolour paper. I loved that it creates a bold watercolour background. For this card, I followed Laura's technique step by step. Mine got a little messy around the edges so I trimmed it out. I die cut five of the "mom" sentiment five times and layered them. I love the way it pops off the background.
In her demo video, Laura mentioned that she would be intrigued with trying it by creating blocks of colour. I tried that on the next card which I will post next. As always, I appreciate any and all feedback. Thanks for stopping by.
