Congratulations...

Hey,

So I made today's card ages ago, but I didn't get round to posting it.

I learnt this great technique in Day 1 of my Watercolouring Online Card Class - sadly Day 1 is as far as I have got!!

You add distress ink to an acrylic block, spritz it with water and 'stamp' onto your watercolour paper..nerve wracking!!

You do this a couple of times for each colour and you can use a paper towel to clean up any ink you don't want. Heat set each stripe before starting the next one.

Then I heat embossed the sentiment using black embossing powder, it really pops! The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp.

It's a fun technique and I will be playing with it a bit more.
