Watercolour Technique with a Beautiful Ride Stampin Up! UK

Today's tutorial is a watercolour technique, using An Aqua Painter Brush with Shimmery White Cardstock. This gives a lovely shimmer to the project, even after the painting.. I have Ke[t the theme of colours from the 2015 - 2017 In Colours of Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, plus, the essential ink pad for this card, is the Basic Black Archival Ink Pad. This is what stops the paint from leaching out excessibely. The Designer Series Paper is Love Blossoms, and is in the current Seasonal Spring / Summer Stampin Up Catalogue. The card was finished simply with an In Colour Blossom Accent that was adhered to the card from with the  assistance of  a small drop of Chrystal Effects, which is a varnish and an adhesive.
