backgrounds (watercolor)

All six of these cards were an experiment with watercolor and other background effects. You can lift color off your watercolored background by spritzing "anything", in this case I used the retired honeycomb die from Stampin' Up and pressed it onto my already-dried background, held it there a few seconds and lifted it up. Lo and behold, there was a honeycomb design left behind! Very subtle and beautiful. To create the collage effect I also lightly stamped other images, smudged ink and used markers to highlight various lines. The very bottom card is overlaid with vellum that I embossed those images on in Pool Party embossing powder.

Hey! That's neat idea to use an embossing folder to pull the ink off. Thanks for the tip!
