Pink Watercolor Spritz

Hey all!! Boy was this fun!! I was browsing around the other day and pulled up a card I had pinned. The card led to a blog with a post and video about doing "watercolor spritz". See the Blog Post HERE by demo Kim Peck. Not sure if this is any official technique, or just what Kim called it. But, it looked fun so I decided to give it a try. Here is my first creation which worked for two challenges I came across this week. Just Add Water at Just Add Ink, and Any Shade of Pink by The Paper Players.




The card base is Melon Mambo, accent layer of Powder Pink and a background layer of Shimmery White. First step is to take the background and stamp 3 background elements on it. I chose the more solid "blot" image from Touches of Texture and stamped it 3 times. Melon Mambo in the Center, Blushing Bride below, and Powder Pink above. Next: spray it with water. This is the variable element. I didn't want to get it to wet, but you need enough for the colors to run together some! I'm happy with how this came out, and I'll be back playing again. Spray it with water on a scratch piece of paper that you can set aside to dry while you work on something else! I let it dry mostly on its own, then picked up my heat tool and gave it the once over :) I attached it to the accent layer before stamping the flower image. I wanted to make sure it was flat as possible and not moving around! The flower image is from the same set and was inked with Basic Black (Archival). I tied a Powder Pink ribbon around and added a saying at the bottom from Sunshine Sayings. Almost as an afterthought, I picked up my Wink of Stella and colored the flower image with clear glitter. LOVE!! Really makes the image pop!

Thanks for stopping by today!! Product details and store links below!! Back soon... I hope!! NCAA basketball may be a distraction, especially when my K-State Wildcats play Friday night, but I hope to keep this creating and posting going!!
