Ellie's creative Monday / Lundi créatif d'Ellie

I start today with techniques for the next few weeks...
Playing with fluid watercolors onto photo paper

For the paper: I experimented with a variety of brands, the result you achieve will sure differ on each of them.
If the color just soaks into the paper, it will give a way different effect.
I assume this was a quality paper, as the color floated on top and mixed really well with the water.

HOW TO basics: 
- Place the leaves mask on top of the photo paper (A6).
- Mist it with a little water.
- Apply the fluid watercolor with a wide brush over the mask; when you use different colors, rinse the brush before applying the second color.
The color will also seep under the mask.
- Don't remove the mask yet as you can use the remaining ink to make a second beautiful background (this will be part two next week!)
- Leave to dry.


I've made a card with the same technique.. 

To finish it off I stamped in the background with a blue solvent ink. 

See you next week for part 2 in this series of techniques!
