I was saving this card as I intended to do a video, but....if I'm being honest with myself, with the June Release fast approaching it's not looking likely.
This technique is a really quick and easy way to add a little abstract watercoloring to your background. To create this look, you will need watercolor paper - regular card stock will not work, a bottle of Spray Mist and a spray bottle of plain water.
Unscrew the nozzle from your Spray Mist and apply color directly along the top edge of your paper. I used the long pipette thing that draws the mist up into the nozzle. Apply the colors of your choice liberally along the top edge. Put some colors close together and try leaving gaps between them in others. Then stand your paper up at almost a 90 degree angle and using a spray bottle of water, squirt across the paper in the direction you want the ink to flow. In this case, straight down.
It's so fun to watch the colors run and move as they hit wet areas and dry areas of the paper. Those variations are what cause the ink to spider out and create the coolest patterns.
For this card, I masked off the umbrella area and the area directly under the umbrella all the way down to the edge to simulate rain hitting and running over the umbrella. Although, if I think it was every raining a rainbow of colors, I'd forgo the umbrella and dance in it!
The rest of the card is pretty straight forward and you can find the full supply list below.
