Watercolour background card

Good Evening everyone!!

First attempt at a new technique. 

A watercolour background card!!

  • I took a watercolour paper and distressed it with blue and green distress inks.
  • After covering and shading it as required, I misted it with water.
  • I mounted the watercolour paper on a black cardstock. (Not visible on the black background)

  • I added washi tape on the cardstock before mounting the watercolour paper.
  • I heat embossed the sentiment from Mudra "Sentiment essentials" on vellum using white embossing powder.
  • Used Paper smooches white "Foliage" die-cut.
  • Stuck Glitter few dots.
  • There! The card is ready!

I am really happy with the outcome. 

Thank you for hopping over.
