I stamped the backgrounds with CTMH Whisper Ink then went over them with the Watercolours, blending and adding in different shades until I got the look I wanted.
I also tried out a couple of backgrounds. I wet the watercolour paper first then added my colours and let them bleed together, then went over them with a clean wet brush and blended the colours out to the edge. It was a lot of fun, I've never really used watercolours, so I was happy to just experiment and see how they worked.
I haven't been able to get back to the craftroom to finish my cards due to a shoulder injury.
I'll be adding sentiments from the Hello, Life stamp sets and some embellishments and will post my finished cards in a future blog post.
