More Watercolour Effects

Continuing with the watercolour effects of Kristina Werner, my friend and colour advisor, Bronwyn, said we must go with the oranges and reds. So this time I used Distress Inks : Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon and Mustard Seed.

And I remembered to spritz with water after applying the colours! And I used perfect pearls water to flick to created the splatter effect.

And I LOVE the effect.

I layered the word die, "enjoy" from Papertrey Ink, offsetting it to give a shadow effect.  You can see the shimmer of the perfect pearls on the splatters on the close-up.

I'm delighted with this technique and I can see myself using it again.

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge, and the Colour Q Challenge.
