This is one of those projects that I had to put to paper just so I can move on.. lol! I have been trying to learn how to watercolor. So far I watch more videos than anything but I enjoy watching artists of any medium! I love youtube for that!!!
Here's how it started:
That's 140 lb. Cold pressed watercolor paper. I taped it down using drafting tape (or painters tape will do) leaving a nice 1/4" border all the way around. Then I used a paint brush to wet the entire thing.
Next is the fun part!! I just painted on swashes of color and then splattered some on too.
How fun is that?? Then while it is still wet I sprinkled it with Sea Salt.
Then I just set that aside while the Sea salt worked its magic. While that was drying I painted my image. This is a Sweet Pea stamp available from Crafts and Me here
And here's the completed card:
So maybe now that I have this out of my system I can get some DT cards done ; )
