If you saw yesterdays post I shared with you a quick 'How To' on how to make your own watercolor wash backgrounds using a plastic protector sleeve, your felt tip markers and water. In that post I created my background using colours of similar tonings eg. all Yelllow/Oranges and then stamped over the top of these designs with a darker colour in the same tones to achieve a unique background for the thank you cards I made.
Today I am using this same technique however I have used different contrasting colours. (Pink and Green which is my favorite colour combo).
The overall result I achieved today is a much softer look compared to yesterday cards, this has a lot to do with my choice of colours and embellishment. I embossed my background with my Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up! and teamed this with a fabulous sentiment from the Unity December KOTM and some sewing themed die cuts from K & Co (Amy Butler Lotus Tea Box Die Cut Cardstock Emphemera).
The blue is not part of the card but the background I laid the card on to take this picture. Given pink is often hard to photograph in good light, let alone the miserable weather we are experiencing here at the moment, this gave a much better result than the white background of my white photo box.
Aswell as showing you another take on the Water Colour Wash Technique, I have created today's card to join in the fun over on the Unity Blog for their Friday Friends with Flair Link Up.
