The challenge is to create a watercolor wash for your background, using inks, watercolors, or gelatos. Since this happens to be one of my favorite techniques, I thought I'd share some inspiration!
For my card, I stamped the flowers and butterfly onto watercolor paper with VersaMark ink, embossed the images, and using re-inkers created a wash of color in the background. I did the same for the layer of text. I love how the colors blend together. So easy, and yet so lovely!
The idea behind the Mix-Ability Challenge is to make mixed media simple and approachable, and to let you experiment using things you already have. Each Friday a new challenge is hosted, but there is no time limit, so you can participate whenever you'd like on each challenge. Join us, won't you!?
