Swirly Bird with Watercoloring

Hi Stampers,

Last week I showed you a technique using ink and an acrylic block to make beautiful watercolor backgrounds.  Today I have another quick share of a card that uses the same technique with just 2 colors, Pool Party & Island Indigo.

The sailboat was stamped with the Swirly Bird stamp set in Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight & Calypso Coral.  The clouds were made with Embossing Paste and the Pattern Party Masks!

I brushed the "water" with Clear Wink of Stella for sparkle.

This is a good illustration of how different your backgrounds can look by varying the amount of water you spritz on the acrylic block.  I used the one in the center for this card.

Here's the inside of the card.  I used the cloud masks again with white craft ink and a sponge dauber.  The "waves" are sponged on using one of the dies in the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits as a stencil.

Thanks for stopping by today!  To read more about this watercolor background technique, visit my August 22 blog post.
