Watercolour for Dad


Father's Day is quickly approaching so I wanted to get a jump on it by having a card all ready to go.
I am really loving the Tim Holtz watercolouring paper.  I had a scrap of it on my desk so I inked up my acrylic block with Salty Ocean and Broken China Distress ink, sprayed with lots of water and pressed it onto my paper.  I let the puddles of ink dry then stamped the silhouette trees.  I love how the puddled paint looks like clouds in the sky.  I mounted the panel with pop dots and stamped the sentimen.

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES


Simply Create Too- FATHER'S DAY







Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Flonz, Gina K/ Distress ink/ Watercolour paper/ pop dots/ Memento Bl/ pop dots

Your background turned out beautifully, Karen. Isn't it fun to see where the watery paint takes a card?

I love this look. I really need to try this. I think even I could handle this kind of water coloring. This reminds me of the Stampscapes technique, but a lot less work!
