Loll's Splash Watercolouring Technique Challenge

Hello friends.  Loll is running a small mini challenge this week in honor of her Splash Watercolouring Technique video being featured over at Splitcoast Stampers.  This is a technique that I use quite often as it makes me feel like I'm a real watercolour artist, when in reality I just dabble in it...sometimes I get lucky and sometimes I don't!  However, with the Splash Watercolour Technique, it almost always comes out great!!  :0)


I used Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint Distress Inks for my splashing, and did 4 different layers with the two colors.  Once it was dry, I used a Tim Holtz stencil and did some "ghosting"...spraying the stencil quite liberally with my water mister and then laying down on my watercoloured piece.  My leaf die cut is from Poppystamps and is called Massa Leaf Background.  I embossed it twice to give it a nice solid copper look.  A simple white frame and a sentiment from PTI's Keep It Simple: Praying For You finished off my card.


There are still a few days to play along with this challenge, so check out Loll's FABULOUS video and beautiful card, and then play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
