Is it Wednesday, already? Yes! And we have a really fun Colour Challenge at Watercooler Wednesday Challenge, hosted by Marsha. She has chosen a great group of colours - but you don't need to use all of them - unless you want to.
I was initially tempted to reach for one of my many flower-themed stamp sets, but then I remembered seeing a Facebook Live video posted recently by Stampin' Up!'s CEO, Sara Douglass, in which she demonstrates a different way to do a watercolour wash. It was perfect for highlighting three of these colours.
I interpreted three of the challenge colours as Rich Razzleberry, Peekaboo Peach and Mint Macaron. This technique is so simple! Start with a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock. Take an ink refill of each colour and drop it onto a craft mat - or an acrylic block.
Use your Aquapainter and squeeze a bit of water into your first drop of ink and mix it up a bit. Then just paint a swath of ink across the Shimmery White. Repeat with each colour. Let dry. I love the richness of colour you get with this technique.
I added the dragonflies cut with the Dragonfly Dreams framelits and stamped the sentiment from Love Sparkles (found in the 2017 Occasions Catalogue) with Rich Razzleberry. The card base is also Rich Razzleberry.
