I can't get on with anything this morning as everyone is asleep. I've done all the quiet jobs so I'm having to post a card.
I wanted to try watercolour backgrounds that I have seen many people using. It can look quite grungy or much smarter. Mine is grungy and not just because I dropped the acrylic block!
I used colours from the current Less is More colour challenge:
These colours are lovely but probably not a combination I would normally use. Incidentally I had a look at the Design Seeds website and it is gorgeous. I'm probably the last to know but I'll definitely be going back for colour inspiration. design-seeds.com
I inked an acrylic block and then spritzed with water and pressed onto the card. I did the bluey green first, made a good impression and then dropped the block onto the card. I wasn't surprised, I am very clumsy. I carried on regardless and did the green and the yellow and then you could hardly see the smudge. The yellow was too bright, I thought so I went over it again with the left over green.
I'm still not very sure about the end result. Should I have left the ribbon off? I like the backgrounds but still considering the finished card. Tell me what you think.
