Default WT527 - Watercolored Background (4/16/15)

Hello everyone…Welcome to Ways to Use It Thursday! Today your challenge is to use a Watercolored Background on your card. Don't panic…if you don't have watercolors you can use reinkers, distress pads, or ink sprays and lots of water. I used distress inks on an acrylic block and sprayed on lots of water to achieve the background on my sample.
Here are some other techniques in the tutorials on SCS to help get you started:

Stencil Monoprints
Watercolor Bokeh
Embossing Folder Stamping
Watercolor Emboss Resist

Can't wait to see all those fabulous Watercolored Backgrounds in the gallery!

Here is some inspiration from the team:

Sabrina - Frozen Water
Lisa - Only You...
Linda - Inked Stars
Cathy - Thanks, Dad!

Remember to use the keyword, WT527, when uploading your project so that we can all see your creation. It helps if you link it up back here too.

Here is the the whole new WT527 gallery: Watercolored Backgrounds


Need help linking your project? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your project and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your project window. Highlight the address for your project. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Fun challenge for me, Cathy, since I really like to watercolor. No technique here.....just plain old brush to paper. Thanks.

I need some thank you cards for a neighbor, so made another card today. This time the flowers are watercolored. The flowers themselves came from Lisa! Thank you again!

I have been SO into watercolors lately! I was so glad to see this challenge today. I got 2 cards from my background plus used watercolors for my main images (Twinks):

Ok, this may not appear to be the normal translucent watercolor background but it was created with Gesso, Gelatos and Distress Stains
