Summer Silhouettes Watercolour Technique

In my latest newsletter my 'top tip' was creating watercolour backgrounds on shimmery white cardstock.  I used this technique for my team swap last month(pictured).  The flower/leaves are all from 'Summer Silhouettes' and the sentiment from 'Choose Happiness'. 

Spritzing and 'painting' with the aqua painters is fun!  When it comes to stamping the images, if the cardstock is still a little damp, they bleed slightly creating a lovely effect. If the card is too wet then the images can turn to mush.  I learnt that along the way :)  The thing I like about this technique is that no two cards turn out exactly the same.

The shimmery white cardstock sparkles in the sun.  It really is stunning IRL.  The colours are tip top taupe, mint macaron, and watermelon wonder.
