Hi! Today I’ve used an image from an old AnnaBelle Stamps set called Party Animal. I’m in the process of converting these files over to digital and should have them up soon, so thought it was a great opportunity to take one for a test run.
I’ve seen so many cards recently with the splodgey watercolour background, you know the one using a piece of acetate wand watered down ink?… Now I know that’s not the correct word for this technique but for the life of me I can’t remember it! So that’s what I’ve done, splodged colour on after I’ve protected my image with Daler Rowneys masking fluid, then coloured the image with Inktense pencils. You can see a touch of texture to the background and that’s where I’ve lifted some of the colour using a paper towel 🙂
So there you have it. A (nearly) one layer card with that ‘splodgey’ background. Hmmm I know someone out there must know the correct technique name and if you do please let me know!!
