Easy Watercolour Background

*This post is part of the Indigo Blu promotion. Remember to leave a comment to be entered in the giveaway.*
Hello crafters, happy Friday. This card began as one of those "I wonder if..." moments.

I wondered if Versacolor inks would react with water & as you can see they certainly did. I swiped Turquoise, Peony & Canary on to the craft sheet & spritzed them with water, placed a piece of Super Smooth white card on top & gently pressed down, then dried with the heat tool. I did this a few times, turning the card until I was happy with the result.
I stamped the Indigo Blu 'Elizabeth Bennet' on top with Onyx Black Versafine & heat set with
clear embossing powder, then coloured a few areas with felt tip pens.
I matted & layered the finished piece onto Core'dinations card, then onto a shaped, 6x6 card blank.

Elizabeth Bennet   Versacolor Canary       Versacolor Peony   Versacolor Turquoise   VersaFine Ink pad - Onyx Black    WA01 Clear Gloss  
That's it from me for now. Until next time, happy crafting.
