Something a little different today. I love to dabble a bit in water colouring and it must be said that when adding some water colouring to your cards it is important to use the correct paper as normal cardstock will 'Pill' with water. The water fluid paper is ideal for painting with water colours whether you use inks or water colour pencils. These cards I have made where I used a sheet of water colour paper which measures 5 x 7" and I used my large water painter to cover the whole sheet with a layer of water. I then took 3 colours, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay and their re-inkers. I opened the lids of three colours and added a drop of re-inks in each of the lids. I then squeezed the water painter to allow a little water to drip as I picked up a bit of the first colour and then just randomly placed the watery ink onto sections of the card. I then cleaned my water painter (either use a water bath or I used my Stampin scrub and ensure it is clean before going to the next colour). When the whole page was covered I then let dry. Don't be afraid to use a bit more water if needed when spreading the inks. I then simply cut it to fit a card front (14.3cms x 10ms), mounted it on Basic White cardstock added a sentiment and ribbon and some gold ephemera and there's your finished card. I used the left over bits to make another card where I mounted some strips onto black cardstock then lay them onto white cardstock and used a Gorgeous Grape card base, added some black matt dots and another card done. Quite happy with the way these cards turned out and I love playing with water colours.
