You may be arriving here from Elizabeth Price's blog Seeing Ink Spots (if not, you won't want to miss her beautiful vintage card or instructions for how she dyed her organza ribbon), and after you've checked out Marlene's fancy card, you'll be heading to the next stop on the blog hop, Kaylene Murray's blog Stampin Kay (I'll provide the link again at the bottom so you can check out the whole post before heading on to see Kaylene's beautiful creation!)
So, without further ado, here's Marlene's card:
and the inside view:
Marlene used a simple Brushless Watercolor technique to create the background behind the flower on her card front. She explains:
Using Stampin' Up!'s watercolor paper (this is the best as it is 100% cotton), cut down to size needed. Add Stampin' Up! Classic colors of choice with sponge or brayer. Do not skimp on ink as it will lighten up as it dries. Spritz heavily with water mist. Turn paper to let color(s) run or add rock salt (leave on until dry) for an interesting result. It's easy and fun!Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to hop along to Kaylene's blog by clicking here.
