Watercolour Wash Backgrounds

This week I have continued with the watercolour theme. I am having fun with watercolour wash backgrounds.

Here are four cards which have used the watercolour wash. The card on the far right I have shown before.  Its background was washed with ink using an aqua painter onto  watercolour paper.  The other three cards were washed the same way, except I used  an aqua painter on Shimmery White Cardstock.  Our Shimmery White cardstock is great to use with water colour as long as you don't saturate it with too much water. It is fine to use with washes.

Loved the colours in this wash background - Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight. To make the balloons.  I also washed the same colours onto Shimmery White cardstock and then punched them out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  The Metallics white tape and the Metallics Sequins gave the card its bling!

This card uses a trio of colours, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay, with the inks slightly overlapping and blending together on Shimmery White cardstock. I made sure it was completely dried before stamping the balloons from the Balloon Celebration stamp set with Versa Mark ink and embossing with white embossing powder. The balloons were brushed with a Wink of Stella.  Sequins from the Brights Assortments, Silver thread and Silver from the Metallics Glitter Tape completed the bling! The strip of DSP came from the Nuetrals Colour Collection. The sentiment was white embossed onto black cardstock.

The background of this card was washed with Pool Party ink onto Shimmery White cardstock. The stamped images are all from Sky is the Limit stamp set. The card had a Black cardstock base. The card layer used Pool Party cardstock.  The striped paper came from the Neutrals Collection DSP.  The Decorative Label punch was used. Sliver Glimmer Paper and some Rhinestones completed the card.
