Happy Tuesday! We have a new hostess this month at CAS Colors and Sketches blog, Wei. This week she gave us some pretty "floral" colors to work with. I call them floral because that was the first thing that crossed my mind when I saw them, but I went in a totally different direction.
For this card I used a watercolor splat technique. I've used this technique before and there are a couple of ways to do it. I explain these in this post. For this card I dipped my paper in Bumble Bee and Merry Merlot ink on my mat. After it had dried, I used a paint brush and Mossy Meadow that had been thinned with water to add splatters to the paper.
From there I cut the strips and then tore the edges. This technique is a simple process and one that always gives beautiful and unique results. (If you want something be consistent every time you do it, then this probably isn't the technique for you.)
