I could play for hours with watercolour paints and paper. Watching the colours mix and move, never knowing exactly how it will turn out. Oh, happy days!
Then I end up with all sorts of watercoloured pieces that I don't use right away so they sit in my drawer for some future card. But then I get the inkling to play with the paints again and the vicious cycle repeats itself.
Case in point, I wanted to play in Papertrey Inks Make It Monday Watercoloured Background Challenge. I had oodles of backgrounds ready and waiting but oh no, I decided I needed to paint a fresh and new background. So I made one and thought maybe I would use two on my card, so I made another. And another, until I had seven background pieces. Was it necessary? No, but I had a ball making them!!!
I used two watercoloured pieces for this card. Some pinks, corals and yellow for the sentiment piece and yellow and pink for the card background.
The sentiment from Stylish Sentiments Birthday was white embossed and the dotted lines from Background Basics Retro was clear embossed over pigment ink. I clear embossed stars onto the background and added a bunch of iridescent sequins.
I'm going to try and make another card for the challenge with one of the pieces I painted last night. Hopefully I'll be able to control myself from pulling out the watercolours again!
