April My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #6 + Giveaway!
We're back with our final countdown post, leading up to the release of the April My Monthly Hero kit! Release day is Monday, April 2nd at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Please note, we will be taking a break from the countdown on Easter Sunday. Don’t forget to comment on each and every post as we’ll be giving away a kit on Monday morning, before the kit launches! Now let's join Clare as she shares a festive and fun card using the kit...
I wanted a nice fun background for the little guy, and since my mind was thinking desert/watercolor/AWESOMENESS, I eventually made my way to my friend Lisa Spangler's blog. She shared a super cool watercolor technique to achieve an amazing background - see her original post HERE.
For my background, I covered a small watercolor panel with water - LOTS of water, as it helps the ink bleed more. Then I put down some strips of Liquid Watercolor, straight from the bottle, down on the cardstock. As soon as I had all my ink down, and with the cardstock still wet, I used a small comb to create a funky pattern across the panel. The colors I used were Purple (new add-on coming Monday!), Strawberry and Dandelion.
Be sure to check in Monday for the full reveal and a super fun blog hop!
