Make It Monday Challenge-Watercolor Wash Background

Hi Everyone!

I'm joining in with this week's Make it Monday Challenge over at Papertrey Ink.  This week, the challenge was to  make a card incorporating a background of watercolor.  I wanted to use my new Prima watercolors, so here's what I came up with:


I started with a panel of watercolor paper and stamped a sentiment from Pen & Ink  on the front with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.  I then sprinkled clear embossing powder on top and heat embossed it to create a resist for my watercolors.  I layered a few colors of watercolor over the sentiment and let it dry.  After it dried, I cut the panel out at an angle and attached it to a white notecard with foam tape.   I arranged some flowers around the sentiment from PTI's Brushed Blooms stamp set.


Here's a picture of the inside.  Another sentiment from Pen & Ink.



I played it safe this time with the paint since I'm still learning.  That's what I like about the Papertrey Ink Monday challenges, they give you a nice jumping off point to try out some new things!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
