Some Yummy Colors

The color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers has some gorgeous colors again! Basic Gray, Strawberry Slush, and Bermuda Bay. I would never has put these colors together but I love them together!



I just painted on some water on my SU! Naturals paper. I just wet my big brush a lot and slopped it on in a trail. Then I just dabbed in bits of the colors from my $9.99 watercolor set. They swirled together and then I stood up the paper and shook it so some of the paint would drip down. I love how it came out. After I dried that with my heat tool. I flecked some of the leftover paint on to the paper since it needed something. I then put all the leftover color on some aluminum foil, spritzed a little ,and smashed a scrap of paper on it. I die cut my butterfly out of that paper. The sentiment is out of the SU! Word Play set and stamped in Archival Ink (Watering Can).

So quick and easy!

  10. This is stunning Nancy, your watercolour background is fabulous and your butterfly is beautiful. You make it sound so easy but I know it would never turn out like that if I tried - when I slop, dab, shake and drip it ends up looking a right mess!
