Inspired by (another) great video tutorial by Jennifer McGuire yesterday on watercolor lifting, I just had to give it a whirl. My color palette is inspired by the current Ellen Hutson February Pin-Sights Challenge, and I used one of my go-to stamp sentiment sets from Reverse Confetti - Lots To Say.
Once I'd watercolored my background using a bright pink Zig marker, I clear embossed the Lots To Say sentiment and then went back in, brushed clean water on top and dabbed away at the surrounding color to reveal the embossed sentiment. It's a super cool technique, so be sure to watch Jennifer's video.
I just love the pools and streams of color. Don't be afraid to add more water - it's sorta like letting go of all control...beautiful things can happen!
Here's the Pin-Sights Challenge inspiration piece - yummy, right?! I was very much taken with #3 and #9.
I hope you get a chance to try out a new challenge or new technique this week. It's a great way to grow your crafty spirit!
