A Year Of Card Techniques / 5-2017/World of Watercolor

Welcome to A Year of Card Techniques Blog Hop where each month we
feature a different card technique. We’ve assembled a team of card makers
who range from new to advanced, so you’ll see a great variety of cards and ideas.
For May, we are venturing into the world of watercolor. There are so
many watercoloring techniques available to us today; far too many to
list here. But actions speak louder than words; so our team has worked
with their favorite mediums to bring you lots of examples and loads of inspiration.    
If you would like to check out our past technique hops, you can do that here:
I happen to be the Sponsor this month, and I am an Independent
Consultant for Close to My Heart:

And the awesome prize this month is: One of my favorite stamp sets!! Love this saying!!

This months technique is water color~~ I used a page of our Live Beautifully
Paper pack that had a white background but gold flowers embossed.  I used a
water color brush with our ink pads to color in different shades of the flower
and leaves. Picture does not do this card justice. I also used our glitter pen
over the finished edge and gave it a sparkle.

I also found some great ideas on pinterest on using water color for the background
using the clear block and inking then spritzing with water.
I also found some great ideas on using the stamp that I have for the prize this month and
the Live Beautifully Paper Pack.
