This is why Papertrey’s Make It Monday is good for me….it keeps me stretching outside my comfortable zone. So this week’s MIM is using watercolor smooshing to make a card. It takes a bit to get the knack of how much water to add, how to play with it before drying it or pulling off color with a paper towel, and how to take off watercolor by splattering water on it. I ended up throwing one trial away but was happy with the other card. My card uses pretty, bright, sunny colors to make a birthday card. I am seriously low on birthday cards. Supplies are listed below. Happy crafting!
